One of the first tracks HÆLOS completed in their album sessions, it examines the role of technology in modern relationships. “It’s about the breakdown of a relationship in the digital age and a retreat into the comforts of technology,” the band noted in a statement. “A conversation between a boy and a girl filled with all the feelings of sadness and frustration at their inability to connect.”
Appropriately, the song features dark, psychedelic ornamentations juxtaposed against haunting vocals and a glitchy backbeat. Listen in below.
“Boy / Girl” proceeds the album’s first two singles, “Kyoto” and “Buried in the Sand”. Any Random Kindness, which follows 2016’s Full Circle, will be supported with a North American tour that launches later this week.
