Boo Seeka has unveiled a new acoustic-driven single, Tripwire. In a complete change of pace for the electro-pop star, the deeply heartfelt, expressive song that mourns the loss of normalcy is a taste of Boo’s forthcoming sophomore album – due for release in 2022.
Accompanying the release is a video clip, aligned in essence and feel. The visuals are soft, raw, and natural, filmed on a farm in Margaret River, WA and they capture a perfect pairing to the haunting loneliness and beauty of the track.
Tripwire is a huge revelation from a musician who has garnered millions of streams from the untouchable electronic pop chops, to release an acoustic guitar/orchestral driven track. But that’s just who Boo Seeka is – at the core, a very special songwriter. Whether that song is peppered with synths and drum machines or whether it’s simply Boo’s phenomenal voice and an acoustic guitar. Tripwire is straight from the heart. Strings fly amongst steady acoustics and Boo’s emotive vocal, and there’s just no denying the talent and passion in this recording.
Boo Seeka is an established mainstay within the live music scene across Australia, bringing captivating tunes and alluring energy to audiences all over the country. If you’re in the mood for a party – which, let’s be honest, who isn’t, after the 18 months we’ve all had – get yourself a ticket to a Boo Seeka show for a guaranteed good time.
