Happy Little Pill
The Fault In Our Stars (MMXIV)
Actor, singer, internet phenomenon: Australian heartthrob Troye Sivan had already racked up a rather impressive resume before releasing TRXYE. His first EP aimed at an international audience is a surprisingly mature and moody collection of cutting-edge electronic pop. Sivan’s brooding voice is perfect for the stark and spacey R&B grooves of “Happy Little Pills” and “Gasoline," but there are also plenty of euphoric EDM hooks and addictive beats on TRXYE. Highlights like “Touch” and “Fun” find this introspective singer crafting his own innovative take on modern dance-pop.
