Boston Manor release delicately lush acoustic version of recent single ‘Algorithm’
Boston Manor relished their return to live music in 2021, delivering incendiary sets at the Slam Dunk, Reading & Leeds and Download Pilot festivals. Their recent EP Desperate Times, Desperate Pleasures marks a concerted step into the future for Boston Manor as the bold, bright new sound builds upon the bruising pop-punk of their earlier work to compose music that's both heavier and more unabashedly accessible than that which preceded it. The thunderous stomp absolutely hits harder than anything the band have released; following this, the Blackpool band have now dropped an acoustic rendition of their recent single Algorithm.
The delicately lush, piano-led iteration of the track is a rumination of the burden to perpetuate content beyond art that creators are laden with these days. The beautiful new piece is completely different to the original version, which is featured on their latest EP, and brings a softer, more vulnerable tone to the track. The acoustic remains uncompromising in spite of its slower pace and holds a stronger emotional core due to being stripped back. The bands coherent slew of hook-laden and blackly witty tracks is the opening of a new chapter, hinting at even greater brilliance to follow if this acoustic rendition is anything to go by.
Alongside the new release, the band have announced that they will be headlining their first North American Tour this year with support from Trash Boat and Higher Power as well as hitting the road in the UK. Boston Manor are set to headline the UK in February at some of their biggest shows to date and this summer will see the band return to Download Festival.
