This Boy: “Heart Is Brokenโ€

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

Weโ€™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 โ€˜who, what, when, where, whyโ€™ couldnโ€™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 songโ€™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 canโ€™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,
