I don't know what it is about the city of Derry at the moment, but at the moment it can do no wrong in producing fine new musical talent. I'n the past few months I've already written about such talents as The Jepettos, Best Boy Grip, Our Krypton Son and The Wonder Villains.
One artist from the city who is already causing a few ripples is Stevie Martin, who is better known to his fans and followers as Rainy Boy Sleep. To coincide with his support slot with James Morrison, he has released his first E.P on Hidden Art, entitled "Shopping Centre Song". The title track is a tender one, combining beatbox percussion with heartfelt lyrics, as Mr Martin advices his love not to "let the road lead you way."
"Shopping Centre Song E.P" by Rainy Boy Sleep is avaiable to download now, whilst the video (which is not set in a shopping centre, strangely enough) can be viewed here:
