One of LA’s hottest indie pop commodities, NoMBe, has been a site mainstay for some time now. Never failing to deliver vibrant danceable grooves, the multi-talented artist drops off his first new track of the year with, “Boys Don’t Cry.”
While this track does have a light and airy sound to it, the lyrics speak on the increasingly visible subject of gender norms, specifically how men are expected to put up a hardened front in the face of emotion. But don’t let the subject matter stop you from grooving, as NoMBe had to say:
Despite it’s more serious subject matter it’s a feel-good dance song and supposed to be enjoyable as such.
This new single comes off NoMBe’s sophomore album, CHROMATOPIA, which drops May 7. Check back here on Friday for that release, but tide yourself over till then by streaming “Boys Don’t Cry” below. Enjoy!
