Faroes Boys Officially World's Best

Unsigned acts from across the world have been competing in the huge Global Battle Of The Bands competition, and the winners have been named as Clash faves Boys In A Band. The group, who hail from the tiny Faroe Islands, came second place in the 2006 competition, and can now officially say they are the world's best.

Clash picked up on the group after our investigation into the Faroes scene. The group boast influences drawn from both indie circles and a genuine love for Americana. Boys In A Band describe themselves as 'cowboy rock', a band (and genre) we have high hopes for.
