June 13, 2017 12:59 pm

Dent May shared the second single from his upcoming album, “Picture On A Screen,” by way of a lyric video. Head over to Consequence of Sound to check it out.

The track is as smooth as the resolution on the latest MacBook, with horns and plinking piano twinkling like pixels forming a lounge-y, psych pop image. “Reach out your hand to me/ I’m paralyzed in real life,” Dent May begs on the bridge. “Reach out your hand to me/ Some late night in real life.”

“’Picture On A Screen’ is a love letter to a jpeg. It’s not just about falling in love on the Internet. It’s about falling in love with the Internet.” -Dent May

“By the time I felt ready to begin working on a new record, I knew that this idea of space within music would be something that propelled my new work forward. The artists that were influencing what I was making included everyone from Travis Scott to Daft Punk, Frank Ocean to Oneohtrix Point Never, Kashif and Gigi Masin. I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof. I decided that I wanted to make a Pop record with these ideas in mind. That idea for a record is what eventually became Boo Boo.” – Chaz B.
