Bossy Love

Bossy Love

Who? Amandah Wilkinson and John Baillie Jnr.

What? They describe themselves as a cocktail of ‘tropical, r’n’b, pop, songs’. On point.

From where? Glasgow

What’s the story? Vocalist Amandah is a mechanical scientist while beatsmith John Baillie Jnr is a BBQ restauranteur and previously of indie rockers Dananananaykroyd.

The r’n’b loving pair bonded over shared musical passions, coming up with Holidates, a debut mixtape bursting at the seams with hip hop, found sounds, impromptu raps and sugary pop hooks. It’s infectious energy ensured that the pair found their way onto BBC Radio 1 playlists and set plenty of tongues wagging.

Bossy Love have since concocted a full live line up featuring live drummer and analogue synths and enjoyed an increasingly hyped residency at Edinburgh’s Bongo Club. At the same time, they've simultaneously unveiled a string of jams upping the ante with latest moment Want Some. They’ve also just been announced as finalists in Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition 2016 so you’ll be hearing plenty more from them this year.

Sounds like? The coolest, funnest Janet Jackson and Prince-loving gang you’ve always dreamed being part of.

Predicted to? Add another feather to Glasgow’s already luscious musical cap.

Must hear? Want Some is a summer heater in waiting. Listen below.
