Troye Sivan Is Dreamy, Folksy and Sympathetic on ‘The Good Side’
Troye Sivan continues to peel back his many emotional layers on "The Good Side," another new track track off his upcoming album.
Falling somewhere between The Beatles and Imogen Heap, the track starts slow — a lethargic folk-acoustic lullaby — before blossoming into an ethereal electro-ballad featuring hypnotically layered vocals and billowing synths.
Playing in stark contrast to the euphoric danceability of "My My My!,", "The Good Side" is a heart-wrenching ode to post-breakup reflection and compassion, with Sivan singing:
I got the good side of things
Left you with both of the rings
My fingers danced and swayed in the breeze
The change in the wind took you down to your knees
Released January 18, "The Good Side" was written by Troye Sivan, Leland, Bram Inscore, Allie X, Ariel Rechtshaid and Jack Latham. The song follows "My My My!," the young Australian artist's lead single released January 11.
Sivan makes his Saturday Night Live debut on January 20. His sophomore album is due out this spring via Capitol Records.
