The Boy I Used To Be is the project of Portsmouth’s Edward Perry, who has been cutting his musical teeth with his own brand of Lo-Fi Psych Pop. He joins the label family of Pie and Vinyl Records with his first EP ‘Friday Morning’ to be released on Record Store Day, Saturday 19th April.
Having sculpted the bedroom recordings that make up ‘Friday Morning’ for the best part of a year, Edward has taken the songs out of his four walls and onto stages with Devonte Hynes, Drenge, Cosmo Sheldrake, Wild Smiles and Lucy Rose. The summer sees The Boy I Used To Be growing beyond Edward and his laptop for company, with a full band on the horizon ready to hit the festival season including Isle of Wight Festival and Blissfields, as well as a tour with noisy label mates Rickyfitts in the works.
‘Friday Morning’ comes out on cassette tape, joined by a download code for those on the go. The limited run of 100 will be available from the Pie and Vinyl shop in Southsea and online whilst numbers last.
