EDITORS’ NOTES

On his debut album, Australia's Troye Sivan sings with a maturity far beyond his 20 years. These aren’t just lush pop tunes kissed with breathy vocals; they’re introspective, openhearted stories rendered in buoyant tones and complex electronic production. “Wild” is beautifully cinematic, with lines like, "Never knew loving could hurt this good” underpinned by a hip-hop-imbued beat and a kids’ choir chiming in on the chorus. On the other hand, “Fools,” while just as warm on the electro-R&B vibes, keenly explores when those blooming relationships don’t go to plan.

About Troye Sivan

Australia-based singer and actor Troye Sivan makes lyrical ambient electronic dance-pop. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1995, Sivan moved to Perth, Australia with his family when he was two years old. Home-schooled, Sivan began singing and acting at a young age, but his biggest break came when he appeared as a young Wolverine in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A year later, he appeared in the South African film Spud. Starting in 2007, Sivan began making videos of himself singing, and uploaded them to various social media sites, eventually garnering over two million subscribers. Concurrent to his videos, Sivan also released two independently produced EPs: 2007's Dare to Dream and 2012's June Haverly. In 2013, he signed a recording contract with EMI Australia, and one year later released his third EP, TRXYE. The album hit the Top Ten in Canada, New Zealand, and the U.S. In 2015, Sivan returned with his fourth EP, WILD, which he described as an "opening installment" of the music he planned to release in the subsequent months. WILD included a pair of feature appearances (New Zealand's Broods, Australian rapper Tkay Maidza), and a trilogy of videos accompanied the album. His debut album, Blue Neighbourhood, was released in late 2015. In addition to the guests who appeared on his WILD EP, his full-length was also graced by Betty Who, Australian rapper Allday, and Blue Neighbourhood producer Alex Hope. The album peaked in the Top Ten in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States and was re-released as a deluxe edition that featured Alessia Cara on the single "Wild." In 2016, Blue Neighbourhood (The Remixes) was issued. The collection featured reimaginings by producers like Filous, Shift K3Y, and RAC, as well as acoustic and live versions of "Youth," "Wild," and "Happy Little Pill." ~ Matt Collar
