TRXYE?is the debut EP from?Troye Sivan,?the 19-year-old Perth artist who?s set to confound expectations with the release of his minimalist,?beat-driven brand of dark pop.?TRXYE,?out now and already #1 on iTunes in 55 countries including the US, offers up five tracks of rich,?atmospheric pop: a genre-smashing blend of beats, ballads, and influences ? a sonic tapestry drawing from a love of?Lana Del Rey?to?Frank Ocean?to?Grimes.Realized alongside emerging Perth production duo?SLUMs?and the studio skills of mixers?Tom Elmhirst?and?Jason Cox?(who?ve shaped hits?for?Gorillaz, Adele, Empire Of The Sun?and many more),?TRXYE?is the sound of a young artist announcing himself.
The lead track from the?EP,??Happy Little Pill??is a?heady introduction of airy and wilful glitches combined with Troye?s rich vocals. The?video for??Happy Little Pill??directed by?Jeremy Koren?(Grey Ghost)?was revealed earlier this week through Troye?s tumblr. Says?Koren?of?the video??The song screamed loneliness to me, so I screamed loneliness back at it. I wanted to create a kind of collage of feeling to?describe the song using a bunch of abstract moments in time?.
