Synth-pop sensation I Am Boleyn is rising to the top, just making her mark on the charts. A remix of the London-based talent’s track Too Much charted 12 in UK commercial pop dance charts last month. It was the perfect holiday surprise for the artist. It’s shaping up to be a busy year for the artist, who will follow up the success of Too Much with the single Little Longer, due out March 6.
The track will be the perfect precursor to summer according to I Am Boleyn. Little Longer also sees Boleyn reunite with Swedish-based music production collective FMLY STHLM, (pronounced like Family Stockholm.) Her debut EP, titled In Between, will come out sometime later this year. The lead track, also titled In Between, is an ‘synth-y homage to disco,’ according to the artist, packed with danceable beats and an inescapably fun attitude.
Lyrically I Am Boleyn explained that she wanted to capture the idea of ‘meeting the right person, but at the wrong time.’ ‘Like you’re in between this transition period and you just want to have fun and you’re like “Okay, I’ve met you at the wrong time and you just come back in September?”‘ I Am Boleyn’s talent is being propelled by a host of VIP performances.
Following her grand coming out at LA’s Peppermint Club last February, I Am Boleyn appeared at Art Basel in December 2019. Come 2020 she’ll appear at London’s iconic Annabel’s nightclub before heading to Sweden in May and later Berlin to woo the rest of the club set. I Am Boleyn’s work evokes a number of influences. The artist has listed Robyn, Goldfrapp, Mo, and MS MR as inspirations for ‘her take on electro-pop brims with hints of neon lit 80’s Berlin bars with a futuristic twist of Blade Runner.’ She spends most of her time between London and Stockholm to work on her music.
A true citizen of the world, she grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia before going on to study history at Oxford University. No matter where she was located on the globe, music was always there as she has been writing songs and singing in bands from an early age. I Am Boleyn is not only making waves in the music industry but also in fashion as New York-based label La Ligne invited her to be their brand ambassador last year.
