Me, Again

Announced in September, BOYO’s forthcoming new album, ‘Me, Again’, immediately took on a shaded figure with the release of its first single, Insomnia. Led by┬áRobert Tilden’s half-broken croon, that initial entry-point was a slow-crawl of nominative determinism; a nightly unraveling that left an immediate impression, cumbersome and vulnerable in equal measure.

Unveiled today, the record’s title-track does little to shift the cloud of fog that cloaks BOYO’s latest work, the three-minutes or so of ‘Me, Again’ perhaps even more tender than what came before. Again consumed by the idea of sleep, both literally, in lyrical form (“feel ashamed, sleep for days“), and also in the atmospheric weight that it exudes, the new track is another compelling cut from the young LA artist, sitting somewhere between Alex G’s early bedroom compositions and Hovvdy’s equally immersive journeying, and carrying a significance usually associated with far more seasoned songwriters.

Arriving via a new video, which is suitably vague and strange, you can check out ‘Me, Again’ below right now; the album of the same name is released in January via Danger Collective and available to pre-order now.
