We at Tower are dancing in the aisles to the new Boy Pablo Ep ‘Soy Pablo’ released through 777 Records. The Norwegian band first came to our attention with their first EP ‘Roy Pablo’ last year with the infectious single ‘imtiredthisdaysucks’ and the heavily youtube played and recommended single ‘Everytime’.
Cut to October 2018 and Team Pablo are back. Sounding like a low Fi indie dream with a nod to noughties NME darlings Darwin Deez and Two Door Cinema Club. Pablo talks of his frustrations and vulnerability whilst navigating a break up (we’ve all been there) in the EP’s lead single ‘Feeling Lonely’ which is number one on our Heat Chart this week. The simplicity and accessibility of the lyrics mixed the band’s eagerness to craft that great hook they often threatened with on their first EP is really polished to great a-plume on this single. Feeling Lonely
When looking at live videos of Boy Pablo, their energy comes across as infectious as they all seemed to be having a great time on stage. This is culminated in the wonderfully sweet cover of Post Malone’s ‘Better Now’- for me one of the catchiest singles of the year but yet is made more adorning and personable by a grinning Pablo who seems so at ease taking on this years pop juggernaut. "Better Now" (Post Malone cover)
Tower will be checking Boy Pablo out on their latest US tour on now with a date at the Fonda Theatre in LA on Wednesday.
