The Swedish electro-goth sextet The Exploding Boy will be releasing the LP Alarms! on the 18th of May.
The Exploding Boy
When introduced in 2013 The Exploding Boy were a quartet, who still remain, with Richard on Bass and Mattias on bass adding to the lineup. Rather than adding volume or compression to the music over the years, time and tide have washed the output with more defined shadows and stretching architecture creating music of more gothic frame than previous tracks featured.
A couple of songs have been revealed from the album – the most recent being the third of the eleven The Day.
A live rendition of the song Blue Coupe has recently been made available and is a reminder as to why they are not strangers with the soft curling tones wrapping the audience in an all embracing sense of togetherness.

Hollow is the long awaited follow-up to the 2016 album The Lost Reveries – the first track to surface from the LP is the sixth of the fourteen and the title song which finds Naberus in fine fettle signposting of a release to grab hold of in a couple of months on its release.

The first song to surface – A Meditation Upon Death – the second of the five tracks highlights the strong melodic structures of the songwriting along with the fractured nature of the individual compositions.
The six track album is of deeper growl than music of theirs previously featured with the crunchy blues chords combining with the off-set rhythm to deliver an approximately eighteen minutes of classic rock.
The third song, I’m Just A Man, is of lighter guitar leverage than much of the LP, though a representative introduction.
