heyboy – Angel

Sunday, June 20, 2021


LA based artist heyboy (FKA Ethan Roche) exploded onto the indie pop scene back in 2019 with his debut single Won’t You Stay being a glorious offering, showcasing his earnest vocal, authentic songwriting and crystal clear production that turned everyone’s heads the second it was dropped. His follow up Lose My Mind elevated his sonic stylings to the next level with a sentimental lyrical wit that made it something you’d expect to see in the soundtrack for a romantic teen movie blockbuster like The Fault in Our Stars or Love, Simon. He made a place for himself under the name Ethan Roche but now he’s looking to forge a path for his new artist moniker with his latest emotionally tender release.

Angel will soundtrack many a late night crying session with his vulnerable lyrical narrative focusing on unrequited love and learning to let go when your feelings are not reciprocated, no matter how badly you may want them. It’s a break up anthem for the relationship you’ve formed in your head. His sentimental songwriting is the focal point of this number with his soft-hearted vocal making the emotion palpable as he gracefully provides a place of comfort within his soundscape to let you know there’s plenty other of fish in the sea, even if there’s only one you want right now. Simply hypnotic and with a subtle hint of nostalgia that gives it an early 2000’s pop hit vibe, heyboy is a new chapter in Ethan Roche’s ascent to pop glory.
