Boy Deluxe Kill It A Lunar Bloom With Adrenaline Inducing Performance
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… One of the acts that I was particularly hyped to see perform live was the band Boy Deluxe. “Tru Murra” and Hope Simpson reorganized their musical focus in late 2019 and started fresh by taking on the Boy Deluxe moniker. The pandemic may have stalled some of their music plans, but after teasing fans with a slew of singles throughout 2020, they dropped two EPs (Risen and I Woke Up Like This Again) this year which contained mostly new music that they hadn’t already previously released.
Including the tracks on the 2 EPs, Boy Deluxe has about 15 recordings on streaming platforms. I think their current repertoire does a really great job of showing off all of the different musical facets that Boy Deluxe has to offer. Tru does a fantastic job consistently producing all of the music; infusing the synth-laden instrumentals with a brooding ominousness while allowing Hope’s vocals to really shine on each track. That dark aesthetic is a strong hallmark of Boy Deluxe’s music.
Touching on Hope’s vocals, I found myself listening to her in awe when I heard their song “Ashes”. There was a softer, delicate side in her voice that I hadn’t previously noticed before, and I loved it.
That being said, I freaking love seeing them perform live because when they perform some of their bangers, you’re bound to work up a sweat. Songs like “Bait” (their first official Boy Deluxe single) and “Sliver Sliver”, with their propulsive rhythmic tracks, well get you bouncing your head to the beat. Watching Hope get possessed on stage as she sings and dances to the music, especially during “Bait”, makes you want to want to get on stage and get possessed with her. It’s that adrenaline-inducing energy that makes Boy Deluxe such a joy to watch live each and every time…”
