Iain Archer – Boy Boy Boy

You may not have heard of Iain Archer but you most certainly will have heard some of his songs on the radio. The Bangor artist has already picked up a Ivor Novello award for his contribution to Snow Patrol’s ‘Final Straw’ album but we can forgive him his past mistakes (!) with a tip top new solo album called ‘Magnetic North’ to be savoured. As well as making his own music Iain is also actively involved in producing his brother’s highly recommended Burning Codes outfit who were featured on these very pages last month. ‘Boy Boy Boy’ is actually taken from Archer’s last album ‘Flood The Tanks’ and although it may lack a distinct chorus it has the chutzpah to reel you in with its freckled vocals, light acoustics and airy organic backgrounds. Remember this is a man who took an active part in that supergroup the Reindeer Section (which also included Gary Lightbody) so you can be assured that his goods will be altogether fetching. KD
