New Warner Chappell signing LAC are giving away the track ‘Borstal Boy’ as a free download through the band’s Facebook page. This free download comes ahead of the band’s debut release of the Borstal Boy EP on 10th June 2013.
LAC come from a depressing part of South East England, the kind of place a tabloid newspaper might feature in one of their regular splashes on ‘broken Britain’. LAC tell stories through their music, reflecting a life that has been hard and crazy at times, but always inspirational.
‘Borstal Boy’ is a dark tale of heartfelt recollections from front man Michael Davies. This moving acoustic track is delivered by Davies’s hushed vocals and showcases some brilliant songwriting from a real and tragic place. In Michael’s own words:
“It came from a bad experience when I was 15. I was put in a young offenders institute. When I realised they weren’t going to just let me out if I kicked up a fuss, I got down and did my time and used music as a saviour. The music teacher said about me possibly writing a poem to go up in the halls. I didn’t think much at the time but then the prisoner in the next cell, who I’d become good friends with, hung himself over his girlfriend cheating. He only had 3 weeks left. As for the music video I didn’t want to do a graphic version of the events so Warner Chappell came up with an idea that has a real 90′s sort of ‘This Is England’ vibe with a few actors.”

‘Borstal Boy’ is an effortless acoustic track to open LAC’s debut EP and showcases their quieter side. The rest of the EP demonstrates a raw and energetic punk-tinge to their song writing with ‘Dead Generation’ and ‘When I’m Around’.
