BOYWITHUKE & OLIVER TREE DROP AMERICAN PSYCHO-INSPIRED MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “SICK OF U” OUT NOW

LISTEN TO “Sick Of U” HERE
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Gold-selling singer, songwriter, and producer BoyWithUke unveils the cinematic music video for his latest single “Sick Of U” feat. Oliver Tree, out now via Mercury Records/Republic Records—watch HERE

In the visual for “Sick of U,” BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree reimagine a classic scene from American Psycho with a twist. BoyWithUke does his best Patrick Bateman impersonation as he hacks up his guest—who sings back to him from a trash bag and while the dirt covers his final resting place. It matches the manic push and pull of this rapidly rising anthem from this dynamic duo.

BoyWithUke built anticipation for the track on social media prior to its arrival. He teased the song on TikTok with a series of posts, generating millions of views on videos of a bloody Oliver Tree in BoyWithUke’s signature mask and even getting his instantly recognizable hairstyle straightened. As for the song itself, the alternative pop disruptor breaks boundaries once again, dipping in and out of glitchy production punctuated by tightly threaded organic instrumentation. Meanwhile, he and Oliver Tree trade catchy lines worthy of the ultimate breakup text. Building towards an emotional sendoff, BoyWithUke reminds, “Life goes on and on.
 
BoyWithUke continues racing towards a major mainstream breakthrough. His following has grown beyond 6 million on TikTok, 2.5 million on YouTube, and 2.2 million on Spotify. His full-length debut album, Serotonin Dreams, only fueled this explosion. Beyond tallying hundreds of millions of streams, The Honey Pop hailed it as “the album of our dreams” and raved, “each song on Serotonin Dreams snakes into our minds in a different way, making some of our deepest emotions feel understood and making some of our favorite playlists feel like they just found a new winner to add.”     
 
Serotonin Dreams features collaborations with various artists, including blackbear (“IDGAF”), mxmtoon (“Prairies”), and Powfu (“Contigo”). Consequence declared BoyWithUke has proven himself to be particularly prolific” and “‘Understand’ shows potential to be the next of BoyWithUke’s hits.” Leading up to the anxiously awaited release of Serotonin DreamsBoyWithUke dropped his viral singles “Long Drives” and IDGAF feat. blackbearBillboard praised “IDGAF” as “a gently heartbroken kiss-off anthem about moving on from a toxic ex,” while Ones To Watch described it as “perfectly petty in all the right ways, BoyWithUke and black bear match earworm, radio-ready production with unapologetic low blows.” Indie Shuffle proclaimed, BoyWithUke has slowly become a household name in the indie music scene; now working with Blackbear, the combo of melancholia and high-energy pop has made for a gallery of pure entertainment and an addictive earworm at that!”
 
The tracks followed BoyWithUke’s 2021 gold-certified smash hit “Toxic,” which has amassed over 1.2 billion global streams to date and peaked at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for two consecutive weeks. Not to mention, his record-breaking live performance of the song for Genius’ Open Mic series is the platform’s “the #1 most-viewed video on Genius with over 86 million views and counting.
 
Earlier this summer, BoyWithUke sold out his first-ever headline shows in New York and Los Angeles.
 
You may be sick of your ex, but you’ll never be sick of BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree!

About BoyWithUke
What do we know about BoyWithUke? If you quickly scan TikTok, you can figure out he is a musical artist who writes and produces all of his own music, creating songs in his dorm room on GarageBand while hiding his face from the public with his now signature glowing mask. Take a deeper look, and you’ll see he frequently posts “minute long songs,” many times written in response to requests from fans. His biggest hit to date was written after a fan commented “make a song about toxic friends plzzzx,” and the response was the song “Toxic.” The song describes how it feels when you realize all your friends are terrible people (people you’d probably be better off without), but the thought of being alone makes you feel even worse. The song has taken over as it vaulted into the Top 10 at Alternative Radio and has reached nearly 1.2 billion global streams to date. Not to mention, his performance of “Toxic” has emerged as the platform’s second highest-viewed Genius video to date with nearly 60 million views and counting. Up next, he will be continuing his sold out international headline tour and releasing his debut album Serotonin Dreams that features new single “IDGAF” ft. blackbear. The project will be the follow up to previous full length projects Melatonin Dreams, Fever Dreams, Trouvaille EP, and his latest Faded EP (featuring numerous songs created from his TikTok “minute long songs” project).

Welshly Arms Debut Video & North American Tour

“Welshly Arms blend soul and gospel with rock in a powerful mix that lends
a soaring quality to their music.” – PopMatters

“Combining a gospel choir with the most scorching hook, ‘Sanctuary’ is instantly one of the most soulful anthems of the decade.” Baeble

“Welshly Arms’ epic ‘Down To The River’ is a cathartic confrontation full of fire,
exploding with unforgettable rock/soul glory.” Atwood Magazine

“Blending genres, the group has cooked up a unique feast of rock, pop,
and gospel-blues.” Ones To Watch

“…Welshly Arms take their fiery blend of blues and garage rock and imbue it
with modern sensibilities, creating a larger-than-life, unflappable anthem
of self-empowerment.”Indie Shuffle

NEW YORK, NY (June 21st, 2018) – Cleveland-based, blues and gospel-influenced Alternative band Welshly Arms debuts the video for their single, “Sanctuary,” today—watch and share here. The video exclusively premieres on Billboard, who hails the song as an “earnest, dramatically arranged track.” It was directed by Los Angeles-based director Dan Henry and shot in the desert near Acton, CA.

Of the video, frontman Sam Getz says, “We wrote ‘Sanctuary’ about finding your peace and safe place in someone you love and being that comfort for someone else. The video has a feeling of uncertainty and discomfort with the ominous light following everyone around, but in the end they’re able to turn it around and return to their peace. It represents the craziness of the world we are living in right now and how important it is that we all find our sanctuary.”

In addition to supporting Thirty Seconds To Mars on tour and performing at various festivals this summer, Welshly Arms will embark on their first-ever full-length North American tour this fall. Stops include Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY, Union Stage in Washington, DC, The Foundry at Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA, Exit/In in Nashville, TN and more. See the full list of dates below. Tickets are available now via WelshlyArms.com.

“Sanctuary” is taken from Welshly Arms’ debut album, No Place Is Home, out now via Republic Records. No Place Is Home also features previously-released singles, “Down To The River” and “Indestructible.”

Since 2013, Welshly Arms have canvased nearly every corner of the globe spurned along by a bevy of seismic and show-stopping songs. Their 2017 EP, Legendary, boasted the ubiquitous title track, “Legendary.” To date, it has earned gold certifications in Germany and Switzerland, cracked over 51 million Spotify streams in under two years, received 1.5 million Shazams and soared to Top 15 at Alternative Radio. Meanwhile, the group’s tracks have piped through campaigns for Miller, Hulu, NFL, Indian Motorcycles and Beck’s Beer, while “Hold On I’m Coming” roared over the trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Academy Award-winning The Hateful Eight. Additionally, they lit up the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! and earned praise from Billboard, Paste, PopMatters, Indie Shuffle, Baeble, Ones To Watch, Cleveland.com and more.
