Timeless Pop gold from Alex Woburn emerges once again, this time with the unexpectedly catchy and colourful, contradictory appeal of Boring Stories.
From simple beginnings of short verse lines and a mellow pace, Boring Stories soon switches into the brightness and mild scorn of its hook, shifting the mood and presenting an easy, familiar yet funny and fresh ear-worm in no time at all.
Essentially a contemporary love song with a twist of character, the personal flair of Boring Stories is the sort that feels genuine yet also relatable. Not so much the spark and excitement more commonly depicted in film and media, but a truthful and cute reflection on the reality of early love and attraction.
Boring Stories proves brief yet effective, making fine use of classic pop building blocks and accessible vocals, for a clean, catchy and naturally likable indie pop single.
The artwork also adds massively to the effect, the Alex Woburn image and identity standing tall both visually and audibly across a handful of recent releases.
