London’s Boy on the Roof Leaps into the Indie Scene with New EP

boyontheroofIndie band Boy on the Roof, which is made up of not one, but five south London boys, is shaking up the local music scene with their unique dark alternative/pop sound. With catchy-riffs and deep vocals, this quintet offers a unique sound for the underground music scene.

Having grown up along the same bus route, these childhood friends formed their band back in 2006. Band members credit their musical influences that include artists such as David Bowie, The Pixies, The Cure, The Clash and The Doors. The name of the band originates from a night when the friends were all on a roof together.
