Boy In Static, the San Francisco duo of Alexander Chen and Kenji Ross, is setto release a new album, Candy Cigarette, in March. Before I get to some infoabout the album, let talk history. Chen small demo album was originallydiscovered in 2003 by The Notwist (one of my favorite bands), which istotally unsurprising, considering their music sounds identical at times. Chenthen joined Ross in 2004 to make a live band and the two have been Boy InStatic ever since.
Musically, Boy In Static appeals to those who love electronica withsoft-spoken vocals, which achingly work their way toward a zenith but neverfully get there on purpose. The electronica works to get deep into the soulsof its listeners, at times overwhelming you in its melancholy, but keepingyou focused on each song because of the outstanding melodic appeal. It likethat glimmer of hope you have when you can see the light in your life butsomething dramatic happens and strips you bare when you least expect it. Youmight say, hy the hell would I want to listen to music that makes me feelthat way And I say, ood question!?But you know what, sometimes its niceto feel vulnerable and stripped of your security. Your emotions becometangible, life becomes clear?and you realize you really need to shave. Thatgoes for both sexes.
