Tugboat Captain are a four piece indie rock band coming from the capital, London, where there is a delicious amount of music pouring out of the underground scene recently. The band are moving away from their DIY roots with this new single, ‘No Plans (later this year)’ as they prepare to embark on a new direction with their debut album ‘Rut’ later this year.
‘No Plans (later this year)’ has an eerily relatability with this current climate we find ourselves living in during lockdown, but one of the few highlights that have come from this strange time is the amount of quality new music which has been released, so it’s time to find out if this track fits into that category.
The track has an easy feeling and nature, it’s hard not to feel a hint of influence from The Beatles when listening to the song. The instruments provide layers of wonderfully smooth tones, this allows the lyrics to pop out and the meaning behind them place you in a state where the words sink into your brain that stems you to a daydream.
‘No Plans (Later this year)’ is a nice starter for the main course later this year in the shape of ‘Rut’, we hope the rest of the album follows this direction. We want more of this notable grandeur which has taken over the DIY Tugboat Captain and allow it to make a presence in their future releases.
