Our fave Sydney based indie-pop artist NOT A BOYS NAME is back with a brand new banger, Psychopath. The release arrives alongside a dance-tastic visual, full of groovy moves and a stylish boiler suit.
The musical project of musical mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Dave Jenkins Jr, NOT A BOYS NAME's latest offering is built upon fuzz guitars, frantic drum fills and a heavy bass line, with Jenkins Jr's captivating vocals drawing you into the shimmering synth-pop soundscape. Conceptually, the track was inspired by a run in with a working acquaintance that almost prompted the musician to put away the mic and step away from music. Aren't we glad he didn't!
Speaking of the track, the musician shares: “I thought I was going insane. It was not until I got some perspective and spent time away with my friends that I was able to realise that I was being manipulated”.
NOT A BOYS NAME's debut EP, The Internet Sucks, dropped early last year and saw Jenkins Jr collaborate with Simon Berckelman, Kirin J Callinan, Rosie Fitzgerald and Ben Corbett. Psychopath is the latest taste of the musicians sophomore EP, following up his collaboration with Bec Sandridge, Fuck It Up.
