A stunning, vividly imaginative ride through the minds of Boy Harsher as they return with their new album ‘Careful’, a record that takes in foreboding, ominous tones of ‘Keep Driving’ as well as the atmospheric, 80’s-tinged rhythms that will be familiar to all fans of the ‘Stranger Things’ soundtracks – an eerie sense of unease emanates from much of this release, a record that is as well-suited to the nightclubs as it is the night-drives.
Celebrating abandonment, while also mourning attachment and love, ‘Careful’ contains unnerving narrative soundscapes that are both bracing, high tempo and dynamic, while also delivering manifold emotions, from the nostalgic yearning of “LA” to the gripping intensity of “Come Closer”. The nervousness of Augustus Muller's out of tune synths paired with the lush and sometimes brittle vocals of Jae Matthews, delivers an unsettled, yet fulfilling encounter with Boy Harsher on their most dynamic album to date. "Perfectly produced with Muller’s minimal equipment, the sound is crisp and clear...a sharpness that adds a further charming nuance to an album as enthralling to turn into a cult classic." 8/10 - loud and quiet
