London-based Irish lads, Bokito – Moses Moorhouse (vocals), Joe Mashiter (guitar), Jody Lahart (bass), Tom Houghton (drums), Sam Cahalin (keys) – unveil new single ‘Aloof’, released via Lost In The Manor Records on 15 September…”A song for my sister and the rest of us living away from home.” says Bokito frontman Moses, who penned the convincingly winsome tropical rock pearl.
Moses wrote the track, after his siblings followed him to London in search of employment. But…Their growing desire to move back home was tempered by a sense of not feeling welcome there any more. “It’s not a specifically angry or political song but rather just about a feeling that Ireland will never really feel like home again, or at least that’s how it seems currently,” concludes Moses.
