Boy Harsher, Boan and Body of Light

Score: 0

Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance. Boy Harsher started in early 2013 under the name Teen Dreamz. The project was based on short stories written and read by Matthews then live scored by Muller. As the project matured the instrumentals became more dance influenced and Matthews’ delivery became more dynamic and spontaneous. In January of 2014 Teen Dreamz took on the moniker Boy Harsher. Their latest CD Careful was released February 2019. From the ashes of now defunct Texas darkwave trio Medio Mutante, Mariana Saldaña (//TENSE//) and José Cota (SSLEEPERHOLD), are back as the duo BOAN. The pair resurrected their hardware-based dance pop with an updated sensibility that is both dark and modern. Expressed in equal parts English and Spanish, vocalist Saldaña delivers cold yet catchy hooks over Cota’s infectious synth lines and aggressive analog beats. Body of Light are a relatively new creative force in the modern synth scene, only now becoming understood. From the archaic drones of their first releases, to a more realized psych soundtrack of their Sonoran Desert home, the duo has now come to finish their fifth release Volontà di Amore. 21+ show
