Today we are heading over to Israel for the premiere of Iris Hill’s new single ‘Boy I Love You,’ a hard hitting anthem that draws influences from the mid-to-late 00’s indie-rock scene, as if it was plucked straight from the MTV2 Gonzo sofa.
The track is a hearty dose of guitar-led nostalgia, and is a wide-eyed commentary on uncertain romances. ‘There’s a difference between can’t and won’t, and I guess that’s fair’ punches through the chorus and is the track’s key message, before you’re beaten around the head by the hookiest guitar line, that’s pulled from an Arctic Monkeys floor-filler – back when they were wearing Fred Perry.
The band comments ““Boy I love you” talks about an unstable relationship from the boy’s perspective. An uncertainty on how things going to end. The main influence of the song is mostly from Arctic Monkeys “favorite worst nightmare” album. The song was recorded with producer Noam Levinberg, the vocals you hear are the very first “rough takes” that we decided to keep because it sounded “raw”.”
