Scouting for Girls spill the beans on new single Summertime In The City


Scouting for Girls spill the beans on new single Summertime In The City

By Dan Lane

Scouting For Girls' new single, Summertime In The City, is out as of today (August 27). To celebrate, we caught up with Roy, Greg and Peter for a chat about the single and their upcoming album, The Light Between Us.

The London-based three-piece have been entertaining our ears since 2007 when they released their self-titled debut album. It peaked at Number 1 in the Official Albums Chart, and stayed in the Top 75 for a whopping 84 weeks! With nine Top 40 singles under their belt - including the Number 1 smash This Ain't A Love Song - things are looking good for the band's new releases.

Summertime In The City is an upbeat pop ditty that celebrates the rare joy of a cloudless sky during the British summertime.

"It's literally about boys looking at girls on a hot sunny day," frontman Roy observes with a cheeky smile.

But it hasn't been an entirely smooth ride for Scouting For Girls of late; album number three, The Light Between Us, has taken a lot of hard work and dedication...

"We used ten different studios, five different producers - we probably went through thirty or forty different songs," says Roy. "But looking at it now, it's without doubt the best record we've done, the strongest record... There were times when I honestly thought this album would never come out!"
