Hot on the heels of the debut single ‘People Walk In Circles’, and taking influence from the likes of Her’s, Blood Orange and Porches – Richards melds elements of indie, synth-pop and electronica to create a tapestry of melt-in-your-mouth sound. His unique artistic lens works with his exceptional musical ability and ability to weave stories to create offerings that are distinctly his own, both socially and emotionally.
From his musical vision comes the new single ‘Don’t Know What You’re Missing’, a masterclass in addictive pop euphoria. Richards’ vocals soar over electronic motifs, bursts of synths and an infectious drumbeat. Throughout, he sings of the joy of spontaneous night out, marking it the ideal track for hazy summer evenings, where the mood is high, and the morning is miles away.
Don’t Know What You’re Missing is probably the most upbeat moment on the EP,” tells Richards. “It was the very first Boy! Racer song I wrote. When I was writing it in lockdown last year I was reminiscing about long hot summer nights spent out with friends, so August felt like the perfect time to put it out. It’s one of the more guitar focused songs – I really wanted to go for a direct, Strokes kind of thing, that early noughties post-punk style.”
The track is taken from Boy! Racer’s debut EP, ‘Cutting Corners’ – set for self-release on 28th September. Serving as an introduction to Richard’s impactful sound, the EP’s four-tracks meld seamlessly into each, whisking the listener away to a world of Richards’ very own volition.
‘Cutting Corners’ – the debut EP from Boy! Racer is available Tuesday 28th September.
