This Many Boyfriends

This Many Boyfriends are an indiepop band from Northern England. They bonded over a shared love of playing pop music far too loud in rooms far too small. They formed several years ago but have been through more lineup changes than The Fall, before settling on the current one: Richard on lead vocals, Tom on bass guitar, Laura on drums and Daniel on lead guitar. They are named after a Beat Happening song, and people have compared them to Orange Juice, The Cribs, Hefner and The Smiths. ...show more

This Many Boyfriends are an indiepop band from Northern England. They bonded over a shared love of playing pop music far too loud in rooms far too small. They formed several years ago but have been through more lineup changes than The Fall, before settling on the current one: Richard on lead vocals, Tom on bass guitar, Laura on drums and Daniel on lead guitar. They are named after a Beat Happening song, and people have compared them to Orange Juice, The Cribs, Hefner and The Smiths.

They are also influenced in slightly less obvious ways by the likes of PJ Harvey, The Slits, Spearmint, Jonathan Richman, Otis Redding and Joy Division. Richard likes Paul Simon so much that he wrote a song about him! If anyone calls us twee or cutesy we'll knock their block off.
