Falling in love over like and filters

Love songs may be the most persistent category of music known to man. Because these songs tell a small part of our individual stories, they’ve changed as society has changed. The progress of technology, diversity and equality has changed our definitions of love and music has adjusted adequately.

Produced by Syn X, who has already imprinted his deftness on tracks like LA’s “Faraway” and Marz and Barzini’s debut EP, In Spirit with a guitar bass-line, “Follow Back” is layered with synths and a Carribean-infused drum riffs.  Boy Breed’s “Follow Back” is mastered with additional vocals from Jilex Anderson, for a song presented as the theme song for the mystique and wonder of falling in love over likes and filtered images; “You have a five-star body where yuh get that”, Boybreed croons, with a seductive melody. “Follow Back” is deliberately sensitive, vulnerable and gentle, showing the exaggerated importance of first impressions in relationships instigated online.
