Today, LA-based dark pop duo Boy Deluxe share their brand new self-produced and released EP, RISEN.
RISEN is a group of songs about transition. Suddenly finding themselves in the midst of chaos and change, the band’s best way of coping with the world around them was by writing and creating. From the deep pain of personal loss to the daily stress of survival, Boy Deluxe transmutes a year and half of grief into their best work yet. From reflections on an ending relationship (“All Out”), to commentary on the rampant greed in our society (“Silver Silver”), to a story of women going to NY to get branded and initiated into a secret cult (“Cult Status”), and an anthem on personal power (“Im the Blood”), RISEN encompasses the duo’s experience in these unprecedented times.
Speaking on the EP, Hope S. wrote, “The songs on RISEN are a reflection of the grief, loss, and outrage felt during the pandemic, but they’re also songs about finding yourself, hope, and rebirth.”
