One of those little gems that’s released, quietly, without fanfare, via a DIY label and makes a pertinent dent in the days of those lucky enough to stumble upon it, Boy Scouts’ forthcoming ‘Hobby Limit’ EP is a tender and meaningful undertaking, a seven-track collection of evocative guitar-pop songs all led by Taylor Vicks’ tender, engrossing voice.

Released in September, the new tape is preceded today by new track “Queen”, a delightful three-minutes that blends that aforementioned voice with some garage-esque percussion and plenty of little inspired runs of guitar that push the whole thing forwards as it gently swells and grows with each passing moment, subtly embedding itself in to the forefront of your thoughts, like a memory you weren’t aware needed retrieving.

The full min-album is released next month (grab pre-orders via the Bancamp link); check out “Queen” below right now.

‘Hobby Limit’ is released in September, via Processional Cross
