Music by Bergman: Boston Manor

Hailing from the seaside resort of Blackpool in the North West of England, Boston Manor are a five-piece punk, post-hardcore, and grunge outfit known for their pop-laden, emo-tinged vocal harmonies and bright, overdriven guitar work akin to the style of household pop-punk acts such as Blink-182 and Bowling for Soup. They issued their full-length debut, Be Nothing, in 2016, and continued to hone their diverse yet heavy style on subsequent efforts like Welcome to the Neighbourhood (2018) and Glue (2020).

Now, they return with surprise EP ‘Desperate Times Desperate Pleasures’: a condensed reintroduction to a band who’ve spent the last year properly finding themselves.
