Boom Bap Pow! is their name and trashy doo-wop pop n' soul is their mission.

He picks you up in his parents Cadillac, flowers in hand and clad in the best borrowed suit he could find. Your dad, hovering in the doorway, shakes firmly on a promise to get you home by 11. No later. Everything seems to go hunky dory and you really hit it off over milkshakes at the local diner. Then as he drops you off and speeds off without even so much as a goodnight peck, you shake your fists, you shake your head and you scream. Boom! Bap! Pow! He’s gone.

So it goes, and with the lazy crack of a Motown snare, Perth doo-wop soul 5 piece Boom! Bap! Pow! introduce the soundtrack to this tale of woe. No Pleasin’ is their latest single and never has heartbreak sounded so damn good.

Listen back to Black Wax with Adam Rudegeair to hear a live set from Boom Bap Pow!
