Brilliant production on this new joint from Chicago-based singer/songwriter Appleby appropriately titled “Bitter Boy.”
“Tell my ex she was never that cold, tell my ex shoulda never let go, tell my ex I’m as good as it gets, tell my ex it was average sex at best a six, now I’m a pro.”
All of the above are sentiments expressed by Appleby in the epic, slow-rolling cut, the most dynamic of his singles to date, and apparently the first official release off his upcoming debut project, Mask & Lies.
I was intrigued by this one off the artwork alone, but the song has been on repeat for the past 30 minutes. Conceptually and sonically—aided by backing vocals from Sydney Jay—this is a new level for Appleby, and hopefully just a hint of what’s to come. Stream below, and stay tuned for more.
