Scotland Yard Gospel Choir

Album Title: I Bet You Say That To All The Boys
Release Date:
Genre: Rock
The debut album from Chicago band Scotland Yard Gospel Choir is filled with the kind of sunny indie-pop songs you'd expect to find playing in a coffeehouse nestled somewhere in a remote mountain village. Basically I Bet You Say That To All The Boys makes you feel – for lack of a better phrase – as if you are asleep on a sunbeam. Sharing both vocal and songwriting duties, the four-piece creates dreamy melodies that manage to make even heavy subject matter seem light and breezy. Adding needed weight to the free-floating record are guitarist/vocalist Matthew Kerstein's shining creations. Kerstein's voice is reminiscent of a Dylan who can actually sing (especially on "Mother Son") and his songs add a rough rock feel to the album not typically found in the music of SYGC's contemporaries. Their name, album and song titles may all be mouthfuls (try "Would You Still Love Me If I Were In A Knife Fight" on for size), but the effort it takes to say them is certainly worth the energy.
