A good song is one that keeps you humming after you finish listening to it. This is very much the case for The Borstal Boys’ new single Sleepwalkin'. It’s sleek and simple; a gentle rock song that features ringing guitars, lilting piano lines, and cascading vocal lines.
Eminently catchy and toe-tappingly pleasant, it’s a song that condemns the practice of not paying attention to the good things that surround you in your day-to-day life, because, according to the band, good music should take you away from your problems, and from the tiresome political and social firestorms that plague other genres of music.
Showcasing a songwriting style that puts mutual collaboration above all else, The Borstal Boys are an ever-evolving band that remain true, nonetheless, to their rock and roll roots. A recent breakout in the Pittsburgh music scene, they’re preparing soon to move into a nationwide stage.
