Eventually, collaborating over long distances became more and more difficult as the project began to take on a deeper identity and form of it’s own. Last year, Joe and Ale decided it was time to work together in person. Re-united for the first time in Italy, Young Boy wrote and recorded their debut album ‘Other Summers’ with the help of Italian producer Ivan A. Rossi.
Young Boy leans heavily on a shared love of analog synth pop with each member bringing influence from their separate cultural upbringings: touches of Ennio Morricone and Lucio Battisti mix with Love and Rockets, OMD, New Order and Tom Petty to create a sound Young Boy used to dream of making. Other Summers' longs for youth lost, hours wasted, teenage dreams and long past summers with its ringing guitars and analog synth sweeps all pulsing underneath Ale and Joe's not quite soft vocal harmonies.
