Date: 3rd March 2014
“THE BOHEMIAN EMBASSY are completely Cult status, I love the songs and I love THE BOHEMIAN EMBASSY…The very best in British original music"
BBC Radio 6 Cerys Matthews
"Interesting, thoughtful instrumentation, clever arrangements and a really catchy chorus. Vocally it's somewhere between Morrissey and The Arcade Fire, which is never a bad thing. From the discordant beginning to the climactic ending, via the thumping choruses, it takes you on a journey, in the best of ways."
‘’Imagine Supergrass and The Move playing a Battle Of The Bands all in one song.’’
THE BOHEMIAN EMBASSY release their second E.P entitled SEEK LOVE, which will be available worldwide as a digital download on the 3rd March.
