Toro Y Moi has released the video for his track, ‘Girl Like You‘, taken from his new album, Boo Boo.
‘Girl Like You‘ is the lead single from Boo Boo and is packed with nostalgic 80’s vibes. Vintage drum machines, silky pads and dreamy funk synth lines and chords, the new track is perfect for the warm summer nights ahead.
In a statement, the Carpark Records artist wrote “After 7 years of touring and recording, I found myself becoming self-conscious about my position in life as a “famous” person, or at least my version of whatever that is. My dreams had become my reality, yet I was somehow unable to accept this new environment.” He continued, ” I couldn’t help but fall into what might be described as an identity crisis. A feedback loop of fearful thoughts left me feeling confused. I felt as though I no longer knew what it was that I actually wanted and needed in and out of life, and at times I felt unable to even tell what was real.”
Toro has cited that during his time of personal turmoil he turned to artists such as Travis Scott, Daft Punk, Frank Ocean to Oneohtrix Point Never, Kashif and Gigi Masin for inspiration.
Boo Boo was released on 7th June via Carpark Records. Check out the album tracklist below.
