The Completely Boys ‘Boy’s Zone’ EP
The Completely Boys are one half Andrew Boon aka Frames, and one half Tom Gilmore from B.O.O.M.A. Together, they make music they describe as “firmly aimed at the late night dance floor”, and upon listening to their debut two-track EP, Boy’s Zone, they weren’t lying.
If you’re regularly in a (good) club around 3am, you’ll know the type of music they are referring to; those late night jams that are a little more gentle than the sounds the previous DJ was dropping. Hypnotic, captivating and groove oriented, this is one of the more magical moments those in club culture are fond of, and The Completely Boys must be two members of that as they have nailed it perfectly.
First track ‘Moving Out’ is a organ chord driven track that will have you two-stepping almost immediately, whilst the almost chant like meditative vocals lull you into a chilled out wind down. A wind down you would need after listening to second track ‘Hard 4 U’.
A harder hitting, beat driven number with swelling synth chords and vocal loops. Still keeping with that late night vibe, ‘Hard 4 U’ is slightly more upbeat, but equally as hypnotic with it’s shimmering synths and graceful chords.
Out now via October Records, the boys are in good company with Ribongia, Amateur Dance and BUOY as their labelmates. The Completely Boys only have one live show under their belt, but I am really hoping that will change with the release of Boy’s Zone, and change very soon!
