Following the release of last years brooding single Plans Sydney’s Boydos has now returned with his second single I Get Nervous, out today on Cooking Vinyl Australia.
The blackly humorous I Get Nervous plays into Boydos’ fixation on the guts – via junk food, caffeine and alcohol – and his vocals nervily stalk the guitar line: “I keep my toothbrush with my cigarettes / And you would never guess by the shit I eat / That I’m just so terrified of death”.
“I went through a real phase of being terrified of dying, probably like most people I guess. Once I had to wear a heart monitor to a Jack Johnson concert because I thought my heart wasn't working properly. It was fine." says Boydos.
"Anyway, this song is about the contradiction in having this big fear but doing stupid things and having a generally unhealthy lifestyle. "
The single is accompanied by a delightfully macabre new video, which sees Boydos stalked by his fears and consoled by the unlikely art of dance.
