beaux has dropped new single, ‘let’s go,’ the third track to be released from his newly-announced fourth EP, ‘how can i sleep? i’m wide awake’.
The song follows previous singles ‘Benadryl’ and ‘cant help but let you down’, and exchanges his previous bedroom-bound approach for a sonic that utilises a full studio to fuse raucous rock with beaux’s trademark alt-pop.
beaux wrote the track in the studio with Jonah Summerfield and recalls: “We’d been there the whole day and not really come up with that much – I just kept messing around with this beautiful 50’s Gibson Les Paul Junior that had just come into the studio and I wanted to write something around that guitar. My manager turned up with his new dog and as everyone was chatting, I took the LP Junior into the other room and started to write and it just came to me.”
On the build-up towards his fourth EP, beaux says: “I just want to make sure my music is self-sustaining over the long term – I don’t care about being really rich, I just want to be able to tour and make music forever.”
