"Stormy" by Sally Boy is all about desire. The song's infectious indie pop melody and lyrics describe the drug-like addiction of thinking about that special someone all day and night. After listening to the track, you'll be as hooked on Sally Boy as I am.
"Stormy" has definitely moved to the top of my summertime playlist. It's truly a perfectly packaged song that seems to feed you the exact musical elements you need. The instrumental, supported by an underlying acoustic guitar, is complemented perfectly by Sally Boys' vocals. His tone is smooth and sensual, with a welcomed subtle raspiness every now and again. Overall, the track is the epitome of cool.
A native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Erez Potok-Holmes is the real human mastermind behind Sally Boy. He describes his artist persona as “the kid I never got to be - the version of myself that grew up in a vacuum, isolated from others’ motives and assumptions.” Through his music, Sally Boy seeks to unpack the difficult transition from youthful adolescence to adulthood. He evokes the feeling of turning a new chapter while simultaneously treading in stagnant water.
Sally Boy is influenced by contemporary artists such as Alexander 23 and Still Woozy, as well as vanguards like Paul McCartney and Harry Nilsson. His first single "Sally Boy" was beautifully nostalgic was featured on various industry playlists. Sally Boy's debut project, EREZ, will grant us greater access to this wonderfully charming and musically impressive artist.
