Shelter Boy has today revealed brand new track ‘Terrace’, featuring guest vocals from boy pablo. Listen here.
A laidback slacker indie pop number on the surface, it also delves into funk territory with free-flowing synths as Shelter Boy’s unmistakable vocals are joined by internet sensation, and dream pop juggernaut, boy pablo.
Speaking about the pairing in more detail, Simon Graupner a.k.a. Shelter Boy said, “When I finished the first verse in the summer, I immediately thought that the combination of the two of us would be a good fit. We talked about it in September, then it took a while, but then his part came – and I think he delivered pretty strong! Nico (boy pablo’s real name) put a lot into the track and I’m very, very proud of that.”
The new song also comes with news of Shelter Boy’s debut album – Failure Familiar will be released on Friday 10th September 2021 via Scruff of the Neck records in the UK. The record will also feature previous singles ‘Absence‘, ‘Atmosphere‘, ‘Forever You’ll Be Known‘ and ‘Calm Me Down’.
The Leipzig musician is quickly establishing himself as one of Germany’s standout songwriters of his generation and after already drawing comparisons to King Krule for his vocal delivery. Previous single ‘Absence’ showcased a breezy indie dream-pop instrumental much akin to the likes of The Drums and Mac DeMarco making it a strong contender for uplifting anthem of the summer, and ‘Failure Familiar’ looks to carry on flying that flag straight into Autumn.
‘Terrace’ is out now and ‘Failure Familiar’ is released on 10th September 2021 both via Scruff Of The Neck. Pre-order Failure Familiar here.
