It’s here. Welcome to BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD, the debut full-length album from the international chart-topping Australian artist, Troye Sivan. Jump in; come along for the ride. There are surprises at every turn.
If you already know anything of the Troye Sivan story, then you won’t need any extra encouragement: Just press play. But first, a brief introduction from the artist himself about this milestone new work.
“It’s all autobiographical,” says Troye. “It takes place in both the suburbs of Perth where I’ve grown up, which I consider to be my blue neighbourhood, but then also in this fast-paced, crazy, whirlwind life that I’m now living in hotel rooms and planes. And it takes place inside the mind of a 20-year-old kid. I wanted to make sure that youthfulness was there; I worked mostly with really, really young people on this record.”
“It’s all about keeping it honest, real and truthful. For me, my truth is an LGBTQ one. So it was important to me that context was also apparent in the record. It’s an important message to send out to people.”
“As far as the songwriting goes, I’m a pop freak and I love pop music. As far as outside references go, a lot of it is pop music right now because I feel that pop music is in a really exciting place, so there’s a lot of 2015 in this record. But structurally, I wanted to make sure these songs did not rely entirely on the production and I wanted to be able to strip down any of these songs and play them only on piano and for the songs to make sense.”
Fans of Troye’s recent WILD mini-album, a certified worldwide pop chart phenomenon in its own right, will have a strong sense of the cutting-edge sonic soundscape that awaits here – the six songs from WILD serve as act one on this expanded electronica opera that is BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD.
It’s a curiously exotic, brooding-mystical-modernistic world, at once capturing-capitulating-celebrating the spirit-anxiety-joy-fears of youth. At its core is the pure, honest, fragile, nuanced, exquisite, anxious, aching, soulful vocal stylings of Troye Sivan. There are many around the world who’ve already pinned this unique sound as the voice of a generation.
