We are always on the look out for summer anthems and this one seems to be a prime candidate. “Broken Boy” transforms heartbreak and uncertainty into falsetto and handclaps, with enough of that dreamy Sydney sound to keep it light-hearted and danceable.
Thief (who you may previously know as songwriter PJ Wolf) has taken on more electronic in this project. With an indie twist, it’s not quite music for the club, but something in between.
“Broken Boy” has a synth interlude that harks back to 80s pop – never mind those lyrics (“she looked for me on the radio”). But the song also takes on the more minimalist structure of early techno with a modern, polished finish.
