Today, Boy Harsher, the Northampton-based duo of vocalist/lyricist Jae Matthews and producer Augustus Muller, have shared a new single “Give Me a Reason” from their new album The Runner (Original Soundtrack) out on January 21st, 2022 via Nude Club/City Slang.
“Give Me a Reason” finds Boy Harsher leaning into their signature dark pop sound with snappy synths. “We wanted to write something that encapsulates that feeling of yearning — the way we feel when we catch eyes from across the room. Our music can be flirty and crushable, and it’s fun to play with that,” explain the duo.
Over a steely beat, Jae Matthews intones, “Speak of the devil // and she will appear // afraid of the runner // who draws herself near.” With “Give Me a Reason,” Boy Harsher continue teasing the cinematic universe of The Runner, the horror film written, produced, and directed by the duo which will be released in January 2022.
