"The sort of thing that might have tickled John Peel's fancy" Steve Lamacq BBC 6 Music
A mediocre drummer by trade, Davy Flats’ first dalliance into the music industry was in 2008, when he formed The Coonics (later Strange Boats) with three childhood friends. After releasing a number of well received singles and an album, the band took a break and Davy relocated from the west of Ireland to north London where he started writing his first songs at the age of 32. Described as charming and erudite indie-pop, Davy’s songs tend to be observations on contemporary topics such as dating apps, infidelity, Brexit, boredom and food fads.
First Generation is the new single from Davy Flats which is released on Friday 19th April on Terrible Twin Records.
Produced by Tom Bright in Church Studios Crouch End, First Generation is the follow up to Davy’s previous releases; Avocado, 41 and Snowflakes which have been played by Steve Lamacq (BBC 6Music), John Kennedy (Radio X) and The London Ear (RTE2XM).
Focusing on the themes of identity and assimilation, First Generation tells the story of two young men born to immigrant parents who struggle to come to terms with their cultural backgrounds which are at odds with their everyday lives in London.
