This Boy: “Heart Is Broken”

Theatric, electronic, Spooky. Just the way we like it. 

We’ll be honest with you, trying to nail down any information on this artist was difficult. So difficult we decided to let their music speak for itself where β€˜who, what, when, where, why’ couldn’t cut it. Taking their name from a Beatles song title, This Boy deceives you from the get go. What you may think is a tribute or even thematically similar group is instead a total left-field experience. Our singer, whoever he may be, has a steady yet understated voice that he wields like a surprise weapon. A choir that begins at a menacing baritone, joins him triumphantly in the song’s second and third act, becoming a religious song of worship. Meshing this all together with well sampled electronic and piano instrumentals, this is a song that will lead you astray in all the right ways. 

We honestly hope for more from this artist and can’t wait to see how else they can confuse and entertain us. Drop us a line and tell us what YOU think of this new track: @gasmaskmagazine,
