Glasgow-based, enigmatic, alt-pop duo Bossy Love - comprising Scottish, LGBTQ producer, songwriter and drummer John Baillie Jnr (Dananananakroyd / BABE), and Indonesian/Australian vocalist and songwriter Amandah Wilkinson (Operator Please), released their debut EP, Whiplash, at the start of the year to widespread critical acclaim. Best described by Clash as “a release laden with colour and driven by a clear thirst towards originality. We're entranced; it's a dexterous, colour-soaked slice of music, with bold, dynamic songwriting,” Mixmag also noted, “it left us wanting more.”
And more they shall have. Following hot on the heels of Whiplash, Bossy Love return this Autumn with their highly-anticipated, debut, 12-track album, ME + U. Further developing their style for emotionally candid, confessional lyrics, atop propulsive, rich alt-pop production, ME + U delicately manages to be both powerful and raw, but also carefree and fun, with that honest IDGAF attitude that fans have come to know and love.
