An enigmatic musician and actor who goes by the name of Boy Epic had us thoroughly captivated with his incendiary sound earlier this year when he released his genre defying single Kanye’s In My Head then followed it up with an EP entitled Everything’s Strange. The Dallas based talent, who’s known for his seamlessly merging film and music, continues to prove himself a noir-pop sensation with new single and video Up Down. Boy Epic, who’s inspired by the likes of Christopher Nolan and Depeche Mode, certainly bring both the director’s cinematic magnificence and the band’s dark vibrancy to his new song and its uniquely entrancing visuals. To say tense ticking, orchestral lush Up Down is grandiose is an understatement. Its video, which Boy Epic animated himself, was crafted frame-by-frame to give it that old-school, stop motion animation feel. 

“The video tells a story of a young boy stuck in time trying to be with the love of his life, while the lyrics play the narrative, the devil is in the details,“ he comments. Up Down is an electrifying and gripping alt package that brings rock, electronica, and pop altogether at once, evoking bands like Missio, Linkin Park, and AWOLNATION in the process. The single is available, here.

Epic indeed is Boy Epic’s Kanye’s In My Head. The raw roiling alt pop heater comes from the musician and actor’s Everything’s Strange EP, set for release April 7th via Hollywood Records. Boy Epic names Christopher Nolan and Depeche Mode as influences on his impending EP. Indeed, Kanye’s In My Head is a dramatic whirlwind with staccato jabbing beats and haunting atmospherics. The powerful anthem even includes trap elements alongside its dapper swagger which transfers itself straight into a new music video. You can purchase the inferno of a jam from iTunes, here.
