THE EXPLODING BOY release their third track ‘Alarms In Silence’ from their upcoming album ‘Alarms!’, set for release on 18th May
‘Alarms In Silence’ is yet another stunning track from this Swedish sextet, melding fuzzy guitars, huge melodies and an addictive chorus into their razor edged alternative rock sound, it’s a prime example of just how truly talented, and unique, these guys are.
‘Alarms In Silence’ – in keeping with punk’s ideology – holds up the mirror to the individual citizen’s face that’s distorted by affluence and decadence: “Seventy years ago, after World War II, people were chanting ‘Enough is enough’. Fifty years ago they demonstrated against the Vietnam War everywhere in the world. And now? We have a number of wars in the Middle East and hardly anybody seems to be interested.” – The Exploding Boy
THE EXPLODING BOY release their stunning new album ‘Alarms!’ on 18th May, out on Drakkar Entertainment.

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 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.
