Time for some synthetic BedroomPop now from Londoner Foreign Boy. Ex-Tommy And The Thieves, Foreign Boy latest demo goes by the name of Desperately Broken and, yes, it is as melancholy as the title suggests, but with a injection of musical optimism.
Gentle toytown beats and reedy synths come together to form Foreign Boy’s sound. Incorporating elements of classic SynthPop, Lo-Fi and quirky minimal Pop, Desperately Broken tells a tale on loneliness set to a soundtrack of pulsating keys and abrasive sound effects used in a raw, human way. Get drawn into the robotic, yet emotional, world of Foreign Boy, just make sure you take a hanky.
