Boy Radio

Brooklyn-based Boy Radio announced this week he'll be releasing his debut full-length album, Neon Romance, featuring lead single, "Golden Boy." The 12-track LP will be available on BoyRadio.net, where the queer independent artist is pictured with multiple limbs against a rose quartz background. In addition to new music, upon release, fans will receive a special digital arts and lyrics booklet, designed by Argentina-based collagist, Molokid, and shot by NYC photographer, Courtney Charles

"My debut release is going to be very unconventional," Boy Radio says of Neon Romance. "I will be breaking a lot of rules, but I hope it connects me to the listeners who get me—the ones who discover me organically and develop a sonic relationship with me."

The project's lead single, written by Goldsen and Boy Radio, is a woozy introduction to the new LP, as the sultry singer coos above slow, electronic production. "I'm a golden boy with a broken heart," Boy Radio urges. "I'm a golden boy with a diamond heart." Though comparing his work to Prince seems insufficient, the parallels are undeniable; towards the end, he begins whispering a hair-raising rap verse, slipping in and out of falsetto, and delivering cocky one-liners like, "Your favorite song's by me, and your favorite boy's called Radio."
