Tropical Boyfriend Catalogue Will Have You Hooked With Their Latest Single, ‘I Can Run Faster Than Your Car’

London based 4 piece indie band, Tropical Boyfriend Catalogue have a knack for producing cute and catchy indie tunes that suck you in from the press of that play button. They’ve recently released their super toe tapping tune I Can Run Faster Than Your Car and we think it’s an absolute winner.

I Can Run Faster Than Your Car is one of them tunes that packs a lot of punch into it’s 3 minute life span. Real warm guitar strums, big banging drums and a memorable vocal delivery make for an indie tune that is perfect for a bright summers day.

“​I Can Run Faster Than Your Car​ is my favourite Tropical Boyfriend Catalogue song to play live. The track speeds along and feels amazing when the audience sings the title back to us. We wrote ​I Can Run​ the same day we wrote our song ​Dinner Party.​ After writing ​Dinner Party​ we felt bold in our lyric choices and began throwing increasingly ridiculous lyrics at each other. This led to many lyrics being cut from the song as we were suggesting things to make each other laugh but the metaphor of the relationship being a car the character no longer needed and could outrun felt original and intriguing.” – Zak Lyons, TBC

“As a writer you want to find new ways to articulate thoughts that everybody has had. After a break up you can feel as if “actually I don’t need that person at all, I can take on the whole world alone”. Telling your ex you don’t need them and can leave them in the dust gives me that energy. We do have a great voice note on our phones of us singing it with the original lyrics that is hilarious. Still… I’m glad we changed the lyrics to be a bit more serious!” Kami Ivanova, TBC

Tropical Boyfriend Catalogue have put together a tune that will be stuck in your head for days with their unique melodies and super cute vocal arrangement. I Can Run Faster Than Your Car is available now, everywhere.
