Dallas-based dark pop sensation Boy Epic just released a new single and animated video for “Up Down.” Known for his seamless mergence of film and music, the track was inspired by the likes of Christopher Nolan and Depeche Mode and fuses haunting atmospherics, dynamic beats, and his delicate yet powerful vocals.
About the track, Boy Epic says “Up Down is a song and video about the trials and tribulations of time. Something we are all fighting and ultimately fear. The animated video tells a story of a young boy stuck in time trying to be with the love of his life, while the lyrics play the narrative, the devil is in the details.”
“Up Down” follows the release of “Trust” and the sultry “Kanye’s In My Head” earlier this year which earned praise from the likes of Alternative Press, Earmilk, High Voltage Magazine, and many more. After his breakthrough hit “Fifty Shades” in 2014, Boy Epic developed a cult following, amassing over 42 million views on his YouTube channel worldwide. Working in collaboration with producer Cut Down Trees, his repertoire also features originals like the Suicide Squad-inspired “Scars” and massively popular “Dirty Mind.”
