In answer to the unspoken question that Ex-Vöid asks – why yes, I have been missing Joanna Gruesome lately. The band, featuring JG expats Alanna McArdie and Owen Williams, picks up flecks of their soft-touch crunch pop but adds a tougher edge to the guitars. “Boyfriend” does a few 90-degree tempo turns before settling into a driving pop burner that’s just as wide-smile fun as anything that the pair were doing with their previous outfit. Hung on a jilted lover narrative, the track is begging to be thrown on the speakers at top volume. It’s a bed jumper of an anthem that speaks well to the promise Ex-Vöid have in store. The song is the first taste off of their debut single for Don Giovanni, but hopefully this is just the beginning of something beautiful and bigger for the trio.
