Bop English (James from White Denim)! New Single ‘Sentimental Wilderness’

BOP ENGLISH – AKA WHITE DENIM’S JAMES PETRALLI – DEBUTS NEW SINGLE “SENTIMENTAL WILDERNESS”;

ANNOUNCE SPRING TOUR & ALBUM PREORDER

LISTEN: “Sentimental Wilderness”

PREORDER “CONSTANT BOP” (On iTunes)

Today marks the release of “Sentimental Wilderness”, the second single from Bop English, the recording name of White Denim frontman James Petralli. “Sentimental Wilderness” picks up right where “Dani’s Blues (It Was Beyond Our Control)” leaves off, a rollicking track that features thoughtful guitar leads and melodic synths that fit seamlessly over a soundscape that is very much timelessly rock & roll-oriented. Bop English also made the preorder for their highly anticipated debut album “Constant Bop” (due out April 14th via Downtown Records) live today and announced the dates for their first North American tour.

See below for full list of tour dates. The ten tracks James decided on for the record demonstrate an encyclopaedic knowledge of songwriting, revisiting everything from Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne to LL Cool J and Santana for inspiration. Despite the fact that Constant Bop is full of disparate influences, under the spell of James Petralli it all makes for an incredibly coherent album. It’s a rich and diverse record that’s teeming with pop classicism and zippy rock ‘n’ roll. There are layers upon layers to explore on Constant Bop, with a serious attention to detail being applied to every track. Scrupulous and ever diligent, there’s a ton to unwrap on Constant Bop, a record that jumps from vocoder use on a ‘60s-jazz influenced jam to sampled 808-kicks on country numbers. It’s all there, and it’s all distinctly James Petralli.
