Artists to Watch in 2019: BOLEYN
Navigating the world of contemporary electronic music can be a scary and daunting task on your first run. Debuts spring up every day, but setting yourself a part from the rest requires a head first dive into boundless creativity and freeing yourself from any preconceived expectations the world around you may have.
Although for the most part BOLEYN is a talent so astonishing that he can’t be described, free and boundless are two words that get pretty damn close.
On his latest single, ‘The Revisionist’, Boleyn uses his voice in a fearless and unshakably clear way that we don’t hear often. Sonically, it embodies wind through the hair and cold water to the face. It is so immediately and abruptly refreshing that it almost leaves you stunned. On top of that, the lyrical matter is so entrenched in raw and complex emotion about one of life’s few inevitabilities – the fallout of a relationship you once cherished, even if it felt like it didn’t mean anything.
Boleyn is completely destined for greatness in more ways than one. If he is crafting music that is this layered, multi-faceted and fearless on his first major venture, imagine what lays in his future.
