One Direction’s Louis is a big fan and, with over 2 billion views and 7.1 million subscribers, they’re the second most-watched band on YouTube behind Maroon 5 but despite their huge online following, band of brothers Boyce Avenue are still largely a well kept secret.
That may be all set to change though thanks to Alejandro, Fabian and Daniel Mazano’s brand new single Be Somebody which was co-produced by Espionage – the same production team behind Beyoncé’s Irreplaceable and Train’s Hey Soul Sister – and serves as the lead cut from their upcoming third studio album Road Less Traveled.
Released to iTunes this week, Be Somebody is an anthemic showcase for the Florida natives’ natural, fraternal harmonies and instrumental talents, and it’s further bolstered by an uplifting, arena-scaling chorus that is full of rousing, ambition-fuelled sentiment.
The song arrives alongside news that the independent band will be heading to Europe next March for a ten date tour which will see them playing to audiences in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Portugal and Belgium.
