Melbourne-based artist JXCKY has come out swinging with his latest release, Kissing Other Boys.
JXCKY has once again demonstrated his mastery of the craft, delivering a track that is equal parts powerful and vulnerable. From the opening notes to the haunting vocals, Kissing Other Boys is a tour de force that is sure to leave a lasting impression on listeners.
"In the middle of 2022, I was beginning to see someone on and off, and I liked this person. The only problem was that every single time we went gay clubbing, despite knowing about each other’s desires and who we truly wanted, we ended up kissing other boys. I thought that idea of cat and mouse and being so close to having someone but not close enough was an interesting concept to turn into a fun, cheeky song." - JXCKY
With production by SB90, who has previously worked with artists such as Fractures, KLP, and Thandi Phoenix, "Kissing Other Boys" makes an impact right from the start. The beat is infectious, grabbing your attention and refusing to let go, and when JXCKY's haunting vocals enter the mix, the track achieves its objective of becoming an instant gay anthem.
"The best way I could describe the beat of that song is dirty AF and gangster, and I think Stu and I both took some inspiration from that. I can’t stress enough that that’s exactly the kind of music I want to keep making." - JXCKY
Kissing Other Boys is sure to make waves in the Australian music scene, so be sure to follow JXCKY on social media and check out his website, JXCKY.com for all updates and announcements.
