“I'm driving home from your house/fireworks underneath my skin/left a kiss on the mirror/and a cup on the sink,” Valeska Steiner of BOY sings at the beginning of "No Sleep For The Dreamer". This is love in all its intangible and tangible glory: those impalpable fireworks and the stamp of reality left on your lover's mirror.
It's this thoughtful interplay - buoyed by gentle electronics, muted guitars, and chugging rhythms - that strikes most powerfully on this song from their second album, We Were Here.
The chorus beautifully explores the relationship between the physical the visceral ("No sleep, no sleep for the dreamer/can't break the fever/no cure for the feeling"/ wide-eyed believer/counting stars on the ceiling"), with lyricism many can find comfort in.
The duo, who wrote the song about being "head over heels in love", said they "enjoyed creating some kind of '80s vibe with our Juno synthesizer."
We Were Here is released on 11 March via Grönland Records.
