cowboyy have announced their debut EP, ‘Epic The Movie’

Art-pop four-piece cowboyy have announced their upcoming debut EP, ‘Epic The Movie’.

The South Coast quartet – songwriter Stanley Powell, bassist Reubin Yarnold, guitarist Kai Smith and drummer Rhys Teal – formed in January of this year, and released their debut single, ‘Gmaps’, in September.

They have now confirmed that their first offering is but a part of larger project, ‘Epic The Movie’, which is set to be released in full on March 6th via Nice Swan Records.

The band have also shared an official video for ‘Gmaps’, on which Powell explains: “we wanted to create a D.I.Y. video that was inspired by early Beck videos, in particular ‘Loser’ – which is referenced in a shot from where I pull the blue square off my head. But overall we just wanted to hang out and have a great time creating it.”

“We wanted to film in places that looked quite liminal and unidentifiable, but also linked into themes of moving around different places,” he adds. “As the lyrics were originally thought of whilst on public transport, we wanted to include that in somehow too.”
