Troye Sivan, ‘My My My!’ | Track Review
Australian pop artist Troye Sivan picks up where he left off on his excellent debut ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ with a groovy, sexy, promo single, “My My My!”
Troye Sivan took the alternative pop world by storm with his 2015 debut album, Blue Neighbourhood. What made the album so special was its social significance, with Sivan exploring the impact of his sexuality on his life. There was an honesty and openness about the project. After a two-year hiatus, he returns in early 2018 with the promo single for his highly-anticipated sophomore album, “My My My!”
“My My My!” features sleek, modern production work. The sound perfectly matches the low key, middle register vocals of Troye Sivan on the verses and pre-chorus. Poise is the name of the game for Sivan, something he did extremely well throughout Blue Neighbourhood. Despite the fact that Sivan keeps things ‘cool, calm, and collected,’ “My My My!” packs a mighty punch. From the start, the groove is infectious, with a danceable quality. Lyrically and vocally, Sivan gives off a sexy vibe.
“Shine on diamond,” he sings on the first verse, “Don’t make me wait another day / ‘Cause passion is passion / You know it just as well as me.” He goes on to say, “Now, let’s stop running from love / Let’s stop, my baby.” The arrival point is the chorus, which amps up the energy level. Sivan ascends higher, without histrionics or the least bit of over-singing. Still, his passion and authenticity are indisputable.
“Oh my, my, my / I die every night with you / Oh my, my, my / Living for your every move.”
Troye Sivan has another winning record on hands. “My My My!” is groovy, honest, and sexy. It is a great continuation with where he began and excelled so well on Blue Neighbourhood.
