Brilliantly melodic from the outset, the emo-rap tones of the contemporary scene fused with creative, memorable riff work and a vocal line that’s both catchy and revealing – EylandtBoy impresses with ease throughout a naturally colourful, uplifting zoom zoom.
An easy alt-pop hit on the one hand, guitar playing designed to repeat in the mind, with an edge of modern rap to the vocal proceedings – a varied flow and a lyrical outpouring that feels something like a freestyle on occasion – the single introduces EylandtBoy with a strong sense of style.
The infectious qualities ring loud, and there’s clearly a talent and passion for performance and the whole art of making music to be appreciated.
Just one of a series of original releases from the indie artist, zoom zoom marks a moment of optimism and sheer enjoyment when compared to the more intense and contemplative tracks like ZERO. Then there’s the ukulele-led brightness and melody of FOREVER, another unexpected shift in direction.
Versatility is undoubtedly a strength, and still the voice has plenty that’s recognisable even amidst this eclecticism. It will be interesting to hear where else EylandtBoy takes things in the coming months and years.
