Bosco Rogers debut album 'Post Exotic' is a kaleidoscopic collection of flower punk and joyous psychedelia. It is surf-pop made by urban-dwelling land lubbers, garage rock dragged out into the sunlight. It is the sound of San Francisco in 1967 and Wigan Casino in 1977, LA's Paisley Underground in 1987, and London in 2017. Dividing their time between Hastings, UK and Rouen, France, where Barth and Del both run recording studios, Bosco Rogers have crafted a debut album, 'Post Exotic' that is the very antithesis of these uncertain and shadowed times in which we live. With its whistled, Ennio Morricone-esque hook 'The Middle', for example, is pure 60s psychpop with its kaftan bells a-ringing, while 'French Kiss' sounds like Forever Changes-era Love let loose in a skipful of synths. It's Arthur Lee cutting some rug, The Byrds with beats. "It's a song about beautiful mistakes, small town love affairs, drinking too much, being a hot mess," says Del. "It's about saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. This garrulous Anglo-French partnership was born over spilled drinks and a game of pool in Camden's longstanding cultural flea-pit The Good Mixer. Their name comes from the French village of Bosc-Rogersur- Buchy in Normandy, where their earliest songs were written.
