Jerry Williams - Boy Oh Boy

Fun fact number 1: Jerry Williams debut EP was called A Hairdressers Called Sids. Breaking More Waves HQ is approximately 5 minutes’ walk from that very hairdressers.

Fun fact number 2: Jerry has now released her second EP. It's called Cold Beer, and whilst we were typing this post we were drinking exactly that. There’s some fantastic synchronicity going on here, we're sure you'll agree.

Let’s just hope, for our sake, that Jerry’s next release isn’t called Go And Shoot Yourself In The Head Whilst Standing Naked In The Middle Of A Motorway.

If you’re a regular reader you will of course have already seen the video for the disco-pop groover that is Cold Beer (here), which is doing very nicely, having picked up over 20,000 views on You Tube. Now we’re streaming another track from the EP. If you think you recognise Boy Oh Boy it may be because we’ve featured the song on the blog before, but in a more stripped back form from Jerry’s SBTV session. Now Boy Oh Boy gets the full band treatment, thankfully the tune and that confused teenage hook: ‘Boy oh boy oh boy, I hate you but I love you,” isn’t overwhelmed by the bigger production.

If you’re in the south coast area, Jerry’s launch party for the single takes place today (Sunday) at Tiger Tiger in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth from 5-8pm. It’s free entry, so there's really no excuse for not going. Drinking cold beer is of course optional, although it would seem almost rude not to considering the EP title wouldn’t it? Jerry also plays 2 sets at next weekend’s Victorious Festival on Southsea Common in Portsmouth (opening the main stage on the Saturday at 12 o'clock as well as a set on the Nevada Acoustic Stage). There’s also another Portsmouth Festival date in the diary on October 3rd when she plays the newly formed and rather fabulous new music, multi-venue, Dials Festival, (featuring the likes of Hooton Tennis Club, Kagoule, Black Honey and Chloe Black) which replaces the on hiatus Southsea Fest, early bird tickets for which can be found on this link here till the end of August.
