Best Covers: Boy Azooga “Do the Standing Still”

Welsh band Boy Azooga released 1, 2, Kung Fu!, their debut album, earlier this year via Heavenly. Led by Cardiff’s Davey Newington, the band incorporate a variety of influences into their idiosyncratic style, including ’90s alt riff rock, Mac DeMarco-type underwater romanticism and that indescribable Welsh magic (see Super Furry Animals and Cate Le Bon).

Meanwhile, they’re releasing a cover of “Do the Standing Still” which was a single byshort-lived Welsh punk band The Table.

Divus Julius presents…Boy Azooga

Boy Azooga’s debut album, 1, 2 Kung Fu, is piloted by Davey Newington, a young man with much musical heritage. One of his granddads was a jazzer who played drums for the Royal Marines. Davey’s dad (violin) and his mum (clarinet) both played, and met, in the BBC National Orchestra Of Wales. Davey himself also enjoyed orchestral engagement, playing in various Welsh Orchestra’s and Jazz bands as a teenager.

Davey’s vocals and arrangements carry the tunefulness of The Super Furry Animals. But the palette extends far beyond singer-songwriterly poignancy. Davey recruited friends Daf Davies, Dylan Morgan and Sam Barnes to form the Boy Azooga live quartet, an ensemble that swings smoothly from filmic instrumentals to a churning, rave-tinged rock that hints at both Can and their progeny in Happy Mondays.
