With their moniker lifted from iconic alt rockers The Cure’s song, this Swedish sextet who have been together since 2006, didn’t simply want to step into these luminaries shoes but worked to take their influences, combine them with their own passions and desires to produce a unique sound that resonates both now, in the future and with decades long gone.
THE EXPLODING BOY release their stunning new album ‘Alarms!’ on 18th May, out on Drakkar Entertainment.
Fireland (The End Of Dark City)
Alarms In Silence
Sign O’ The Times
The Exploding Boy have been called many things – post-punk, alternative, dark indie rock, dark wave, gothic, dark dance – and are undoubtedly an amalgamation of all these, but within them are tunes with waves of angst, haunting melodies, melancholic undercurrents and seductive harmonies captivating all who hear them.
The Exploding Boy’s fifth album is simply a beautiful blend of emotion, melodies and attitude and sees the Swedish sextet really stepping up their their game. Alarms! is a must hear.
