VIDEO PREMIERE: BOYO “SKIP”

“Skip” itself is BOYO‘s Robert Tilden in a clearer and maybe even more cheerful mode than some of his earlier work, maybe informed by his recently coming out the other side of some crushing medical experiences. There’s a little of the Clean’s happy clatter in here—it’s a pop song pulled back down to street level, where it feels like a conversation with a friend instead of a message from above. That’s always been part of BOYO’s charm—the way the personality comes through. It’s a song about leaving things behind, but sometimes that can be one of the best moves you can make.
