Glasgow based enigmatic duo, singer-come-mechanical scientist Amandah Wilkinson (formally Operator Please) and ex Dananananaykroyd drummer/ BBQ restaurateur John Baillie Jnr, Bossy Love aren’t your typical RnB/Pop pair.
“Infectious pop-funk – Prince on a trampoline” – The Guardian
Lauded by critics as ‘one to watch’ after they self released tracks ‘Sweat It Out,’ and ‘Body’ last year, both quickly earned the band a dedicated following. The powerful debut single that followed, ‘Want Some’ released on Nightwave’s tastemaker label Heka Trax this March treated listeners ears to their next dose of ‘tropical R&B’ meets hard hip hop beats, with remixes from the label boss herself and Big Dope P (Ninja Tune / LuckyMe).
“One of the most exciting bands on the planet right now” – BBC Radio Scotland
Securing plays across BBC Radio 1Xtra, Beats 1, Kiss FM as well as a whole lot of love from the blogosphere; Dummy, Fader, Clash, Earmilk, GOLDFLAKEPAINT and more all boarding the Bossy train. Live Bossy Love are a force to be reckoned with. Experienced touring artists they come without trepidation ready to convert the new and excite the faithful. Creamy sounds, samples and lyrics delivered with a zero-fucks magnetic punk attitude.
“Bossy Love make the kind of R&B that their name promises: Sweet but direct, sexy but firmly in charge” – The Fader“
