bülow: Boys Will Be Boys

By Kerry Doole

bülow - Boys Will Be Boys (Wax Records /UMC): The Juno-winning, multi-platinum-selling electro-pop artist releases a new EP on October 4. and this is the first single from that record.

Her breathy vocals are placed over insistent and staccato beats, while the lyrics speak of defiance in the face of bad behaviour ("if you think I'm going to cry, you're delusional"). In a label press release, bulow explains that "the song is ironic. A ‘fuck you’ to old sayings that reinforce negative bullshit.”

Boys Will Be Boys was written by bulow and produced by Michael Wise [Ellie Goulding, James Blunt]. The track follows the artist’s summer track Get Stupid, off Crystalline released earlier this year. 


bülow first burst onto the music scene with the release of EPs Damaged Vol. 1 & Damaged Vol. 2,  with the track Not A Love Song becoming a global hit. She has made noise on the international festival circuit, appearing at both the Electric Picnic and Reading Leeds festivals in Europe, as well as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and SXSW in North America. Earlier this year, she accepted her first Juno Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, joined The Chainsmokers as a feature on Do You Mean with Ty Dolla Sign, and performed on The Today Show.

Along with the upcoming new EP, bülow is gearing up to head back on the road with LAUV this fall for a string of US dates, in addition to headlining select shows across the country. First, she plays two shows this week in Germany (the country of her birth), in Berlin, on Sept. 18, and at Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Sept. 19. Tour dates here
