The Rumble Strips Girls and Boys in Love Single

Lady's and gentlemen, Get Ready To Rumble! A bouncy brand of acoustic guitar, piano, sax and trumpet, is about to be unearthed. Following on from Motorcycle, the innovators, otherwise known as The Rumble Strips, release a high-spirited and entirely original track.

"Girls and Boys In Love" is a ska propelled contemporary love song. Starting like something out of a romantic comedy; bubbly and with a spring in its step, then developing into a juicy upbeat pop track, finishing with a toe-tapping instrumental. Plenty of hand clapping, tambourines, acoustic guitar, piano and harmonic singing combine to make a truly brilliant song, with a pop essence.

As always Charlie's vocals steal the limelight; a radiant well-pitched vocal texture and entirely original tone.

The Tavistock men and their build of sax and trumpet are here to stay.
