Heavily electronic waves of synths and warmth unite amidst an equally effected vocal for a retro-sci-fi sound, which contrasts beautifully with the heartfelt openness and emotion of the writing and melody – Boy Of June connects for style and sentiment alike on this release.
Featuring a unique fusion of genres yet an ultimately electro-pop setup and manner of song-writing, The One takes listeners through layers of possibility and uncertainty, before finally resolving with the absoluteness of knowing.
Before its hook, the song perhaps fades into the background – not in a bad way, but in a calming, good-vibes kind of synth-pop manner. Once the hook settles in and repeats though, the song’s underlying sentiment and this descending resolution quickly leave a mark, and the melody and emotion linger for quite some time.
From the heart and the programming software alike – a fresh take on a familiar style, and a genuine way to celebrate love and unity.
