The Boy Least Likely To
Hugging My Grudge
The Boy Least Likely To are Jof (lyrics, vocals) and Peter (music, instruments), and together they understand that whilst all the best pop records are about love, loss and distance, it is the glistening melodies and tender hooks that are the honey trap. 'Hugging My Grudge' is the perfect introduction to their gently warped world, where a love of uplifting rural pop is balanced with insightful lyrics informed by an awareness of mortality and a loss of innocence.
The pair met when they were still at school and grew up together in the small Buckinghamshire village of Wendover, a place they describe as being "like a cross between Trumpton and Sunnydale. On the surface it seems idyllic. All flowers and candyfloss, but underneath there is a darkness. The flowers have teeth and the candyfloss is laced". Sharing a love of the lost pop music of the 80s, and of weird and wonderful instruments found at car boot sales and The Early Learning Centre, it was only a matter of time before they set about translating the pop songs in their heads into reality.
