Half French, half Japanese artist Soran returns with brand new 5 track EP Space Boy. Following on from the honest and confessional ‘Way Up’, the cosmic ‘Space Boy’ and the electronic alt- pop ‘Tired’. ‘Space Boy’ showcases incredibly sophisticated songwriting and radiates honesty throughout.
With the evolution of his style Soran has truly landed with his explorative concoction of alternative RnB, Lo-fi, spacey electronics and buttery soft vocals all of which are perfectly displayed in this turn of the tide project ‘Space Boy’ via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
A beautiful balance resides in the EP itself, with half containing elements of Soran’s past and the other representing his interpretation of his future. Referencing specifically that previous single ‘Tired’ and ‘What if’ are from before, ‘Don’t’ as a transitional piece and ‘Way Up’ and ‘Space Boy’ are defined as his newest offerings, providing insight into the direction he’s heading artistically and sonically.
Entirely hands-on from conception all the way through to producing, Soran explores and absorbs it all, with genre being one of his favourite galaxies to traverse. Alongside writing for his own artistic project, Soran is also working with and writing songs for some other huge names in the industry such as Johnny Orlando, Alessia Cara, Zack Zoya and Anna Sofia.
Catch Soran performing live on his tour in Montreal, Toronto and Gatineau in May, tour dates can be found here. As well as opening for Wild Rivers across Western Canada this July, please see below.
“Space Boy tells my story in parallel with the Japanese anime “Space Boy Soran” from which my mother was inspired to choose my first name. Each song tells an experience that I lived the past 3-4 years and you can hear at the same time the evolution of my sounds shape. This EP is the introduction to a world where I, Space Boy, am about to dive to become the Soran invested with a mission: to reinvent the perspective of what is ‘Pop’.” – Soran
