Troye Sivan has a new EP out today called WILD and it has six very good songs on it, including a duet with New Zealand brother/sister duo Broods called EASE.
The title track though is a bit of a beaut itself, all slow-burning, synth-shuddering electronics, nifty hooks and yearning vocals, and earlier today the 20 year old Perth-based singer premiered its official music video on YouTube.
Directed by Tim Mattia, the emotional clip seemingly explores the oft-painstaking, inter-connecting boundaries of love and friendship, and it’s the first in Sivan’s Blue Neighbourhood trilogy of conceptual music videos that are being released to accompany the EP.
Also, thanks to an insightful interview with Popjustice, we have learnt that Troye has befriended Allie X, one of our favourite new pop stars of the past eighteen months, that he’d like to record a gay ballad with Years and Years’ Olly Alexander, and also that a “whole body of work” will be released before the year is out.
