Boy Harsher, Twin Tribes

CL's Matthew Warhol Recommends: Boy Harsher are built for a winter tour. Atlanta in April might be too warm for the cruel frost their music conjures up. Their dark wave synths are bone-chilling. The drums are cold and lifeless in the best way possible. They demand you dance like a skeleton with your eyeholes pointed towards the floor. The haunting vocals of Jae Matthews are somehow both soothing and disturbing. Songs like “LA,” “Pain,” and “Tears,” make me beg for Delorean to 80s so this music can get the worldwide respect it deserves. Although they may not reach the heights of New Order, I am so glad gothic new wave is hip again. I was getting tired of the dancing to The Cure surrounded by 60-year-old vampires. — MW
