Boy Pablo are Pablo Muñoz, a 19-year-old teenager from Norway with a Chilean background, and Declan Mckenna and Gus Dapperton, his best friends. Together they started Boy Pablo, a bedroom project, in 2016 and released 3 singles and a 6-track EP. All Boy Pablo’s tracks are self produced and written.
Boy Pablo‘s “Everytime” ended up in the You Tube recommended video/side bar of anyone that is into indie music. Was it a twist of fate that the song gained favour of the Tube’s algorithm, or was it a music-hound with a keen eye for talent? One thing is sure: Boy Pablo will soon be man! Their single “Everytime” literally exploded (6 million plays), and turned the life of these youngsters upside down. After being heralded by the media as the new Mac de Marco, and getting to play for the King & Queen of Norway, Boy Pablo are now playing for sold-out concert halls in Europe (then we take the US).
Just a few days ago, the band also dropped the new single “Losing You“, which is surprisingly, even better, and will give them the opportunity to distinguish themselves from the “de Marco/Miles High club”. As opposed to the more snoozy, slow-strumming, lo-fi, retro-synth sound from before, “Losing You” is a sparkly uptempo pop-gem that reminds me heavily of sophisti-pop giants like Aztec Camera and Everything but the Girl. “Losing You” sounds like yesterday, and utterly fresh at the same time, but above all, irrestibly charming! Don’t miss them live, like I just did….(damn).
