Colin Caulfield, otherwise known as Young Man, first gained recognition for his Youtube covers of bands like Deerhunter, Beach House, and Animal Collective. Deerhunter's Bradford Cox stated that the redux was, "fantastically superior to the original." Caulfield, no longer mimicking the voices of his idols, is now telling his own, Young Man stories, in his first EP, Boy. Perhaps you've seen the CMJ shindig we invited him to?
Boy's opening track, "Five", begins the tale of the artist's yearning to grow up. The video's adolescent son is mesmerized by the tranquility of his aquarium, whose bubbling flow is complimented by Young Man's psych-infused harmonies. With its tropical, Seu Jorge strums and its "Waterloo Sunset" vibe, Wes Anderson fans should enjoy this unintended, Zissou prequel.
