Tachys began life as a duo during lockdown in Copenhagen, having been childhood friends. Tobias Wilner (Blue Foundation, Ghost Society, New York United) and Jonas Bjerre (Mew, Apparatjik, Themes For Great Cities) then started collaborating, leading to an album and single releases.
Their new single ‘Boy’ develops their blend of electronic and alternative music, eerie soundscapes, pulsing rhythms, and horror pop. At the core of ‘Boy’ is the duo’s commitment to pushing boundaries and exploring complex themes. The song tells the story of a young man who is hiding away in a dark tunnel, because he is too beautiful for the world to behold. Kept in the grips of his own narcissism, his ego and desire are at odds with his sense of morality and feelings of guilt.
The track’s underlying theme is one of self-discovery and the fear of facing the reality of who we truly are. As the band explains, “Each of us has multiple sides to ourselves, and ‘Boy’ is about the fear of acknowledging darker aspects of our personality, and letting go of the illusions we build for ourselves, the characters we end up pretending to be.”
Boy was released on April 21.
