Bdy_Prts write great songs. Like, really great songs. Which makes it all the more frustrating that so few of them roam free in the wild. Three singles exist to date. ‘IDLU’came out in 2014, followed a year later by ‘Cold Shoulder’. Now, sauntering in without a care in the world, comes ‘Rooftops’. Three singles in four years. What sort of a work rate is that?

Oh, sure, the duo are busy with other things. Jill O’Sullivan leads Sparrow And The Workshop, while Jenny Reeve is a member of Strike The Colours and has collaborated with the likes of Snow Patrol, Idlewild, King Creosote and Malcolm Middleton.

The good news is, ‘Rooftops’ signals the arrival later this year of Bdy_Prts’ debut album. And some fine signalling it does too. With a carefully crafted song as their base, O’Sullivan and Reeve allow the track to morph and swell on its foundations, making for something that feels comfortable but leaves room for surprises.
