Sydney-based singer/songwriter BOLEYN is again after an extended hiatus with “GIRLFRIEND”, a sultry exploration of heartbreak. This tune shines a light-weight on those that have been heartbroken by a accomplice who’s unable or unwilling to come back out and proceed to stay a double life. That is his first launch since “Violence” all the best way again in 2020.
Of the monitor, BOLEYN explains: “Falling for and having your coronary heart damaged by closeted guys is nearly a queer ceremony of passage, particularly for individuals who develop up within the suburbs,”
You’re on this quasi-semi-kinda-but-not-really relationship with somebody who loves you within the backseat however needs nothing to do with you within the daylight. It’s not a enjoyable time.”
I wrote ‘Girlfriend’ as a option to take possession of that narrative and underscore what, for me, is an important factor I discovered from these occasions: “You might misinform your mates and your loved ones, you could fake you don’t know who I’m after we’re all lining up on the bar of the native pub, however you and I each know what we had.
Even when nobody else does.. you and I each know what we shared. You possibly can try to rewrite historical past, nevertheless it’s too late – the tune is already blended and mastered.”
The video is gorgeous and sensual. The attraction resonates, the reality of the fervour is vivid and actual. Moody lo-fi guitars and BOLEYN’s smoking, sensual vocals has “GIRLFRIEND” simmering from begin to end.
“GIRLFRIEND” could also be his first solo materials since 2020, however BOLEYN has been saved busy. He has been fronting Sydney band False London, who not too long ago supported STUMPS and Pacific Avenue on nationwide excursions. He additionally carried out on the inaugural APRA AMCOS x Mardi Gras Categorical Your self Showcase.
BOLEYN is at present engaged on his debut EP, Huge Away, I’m Dreaming, with producer Xavier Dunn (Peking Duk, Jack River, CXLOE).
