Boyu delivers stellar new album ‘Flower Garden’

St. Louis-bred, Los Angeles-based artist Boyu has delivered a stellar debut album in Flower Garden, a 12 track odyssey into vibrant, rich sonics and mesmerizing songwriting. The project remains versatile throughout, drawing from the best elements of modern indie-pop, alt-rock, and even hip-hop, as it refuses to be boxed in to one style or sound.

Here, Boyu’s emotive, poignant lyricism and sharply-crafted instrumentation shines through across many memorable moments. Opener and title track “Flower Garden” is a sublime, catchy dose of Boyu’s captivatingly colorful sound, embedding itself into the listener’s memory with its focused, ear-worm melodies. Then there are tracks like “Hands Around Your Throat”, which showcase Boyu’s diverse skillset as a songwriting with its bouncier, energizing tempo and driving rhythm. The wistful, nostalgic elegance of “Embers Of Our Innocence” bring back colorful memories of times past, as Boyu weaves together sharply-crafted melodies atop crisp percussion and immersive keys. Closer “Miata Trip” was our personal favorite from the record, with its sunny, airy sonics based around infectious vocals and dreamy, atmospheric guitars.

A truly remarkable sonic journey overall, Flower Garden captivates with its colorful spectrum of influences, drawing the listener into the songwriter’s world with its euphoric instrumentation and heartfelt lyricism.

St. Louis native Boyu began his musical journey as a classically-trained pianist before turning his attention to drums, guitar, and songwriting. Originally setting out on the path of corporate banking, Boyu made the decision to relocate from Boston, MA to Los Angeles, CA to follow his true passion- making music. Although he made his debut relatively recently in April 2021, his music and videos gained momentum very quickly and made an immediate impression with listeners, garnering an impressive 1,000,000+ streams independently.

Monroe Jordan drops ethereal new single “bound”

By Christian Peeney

Ohio R&B artist Monroe Jordan has released his latest single “bound”.


With an ethereal sounding bass-line and smooth guitars, the song is like entering an enchanted forest on a warm, summer night. Fireflies light up the woods, revealing beautiful rosebushes and aged trees, all underneath a starry night sky. From its very beginning, it captures the listener and brings them into his world.


The highlight of the song is Jordan’s voice. Similar to Frank Ocean’s, his voice has a beautiful upper register, and he creates simple, yet incredible harmonies. Clearly inspired by Frank Ocean’s music, Jordan uses those harmonies to create movement throughout the song, fading in and out like waves on a beach. Through this, those harmonies make a satisfying sound that forces the listener to continue all the way to the end.
