LISTEN: Show Boy – ‘Video’

Having built a reputation over the last few years across London for his dazzling, energy-filled live shows (with support slots for bands such as HMLTD and Black Midi), artist and producer Show Boy has recently changed his set-up from a full band to a duo, creating inspired soundscapes filled with loops and innovative layers. And now, following his exquisite last single ‘Heart Is An Apple’, which received acclaim from the likes of Tom Robinson and BBC Introducing, he’s shared a brand new single, showcasing his new sound perfectly. 

Taken from his upcoming Surreal EP, which depicts a collapsing relationship in the age of social media, ‘Video’ looks at these ideas through the prism of endlessly repeating film footage. Propelled by throbbing beats and a whirring danceable energy, alongside Jovis’ soaring vocals, it’s an instantly catchy, sparkling alt-pop gem that demands multiple listens.

Show Boy’s upcoming Surreal EP is set for release later this year. Listen to ‘Video’ on Spotify now. Catch Show Boy live at The Social on 31st May.
