Its interesting how record companies always seem to go out and hunt down soundalikes when a group becomes successful, and how such bands seem to pop up. Montreal's Sam Roberts has become very successful over the last couple of years here in Canada. Now, a group with the rather generic name of Boy has popped up. I saw the video to their first single off their new record on Muchmusic recently and thought it was Sam Roberts. I sat there thinking "Hmmmm, Roberts has shaved off his beard" before finding out it was actually Boy. You can listen to "Same Old Song" at their website, and perhaps disagree with me that it sounds like Sam Roberts.
