‘O Boy’ is the follow up single from enigmatic NYC based artist Locke, who’s inexplicably dark and malevolent debut single ‘We Are the Prey‘ was released a couple months back. ‘O Boy’ serves a cold backdrop of sparse post-Timbaland drums guided by Locke’s eerily whispered chants (“it’s getting darker everyday, save me”). You’ll find yourself utterly drawn into this, it’s a hypnotising.
