Today’s Tunesday is about a recent release we are obsessing over. With his seamless transitions from catchy electro-pop instrumentals to heart-wrenching lyrics, and intermittently both at the same time, Troye Sivan hit the nail on the head with Blue Neighbourhood.
He successfully created an album filling, what I believe was, a gap in this genre from a male artist. The accompanying videos for some of the songs previously released have a beautiful, etherial quality that is very fitting for songs so filled with emotion and soul.
In this, his first full-length studio album, Troye details the struggles of coming to terms with himself and growing up when he wasn’t always accepted, particularly in “Lost Boy.” Despite being a fan of the album in its entirety, I’ve selected some of my absolute favorites below.
Fun fact: Troye played young Logan in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Remember this kid?
