Boulevarde’s have just released ‘I Needed You’ Feat Nick De La Hoyde. This song shows writing well beyond their years maturity wise and the music has unique sounds that you are bound to love. ‘I Needed You’ is their first single off their new EP to be released soon. This song’s development almost seems too easy! The music and lyrics were written, then the band met Nick by chance and after sending him a demo he sent his vocal cut and it was just what they wanted. Sweet!
Listen to ‘I Needed You’ Feat Nick De La Hoyde here.
Jen asked Boulevarde to list their top 5 influences and why. These are their answers.

A pioneer of the electronic music genre and largely what sparked our interest in creating the music we do. I don’t think there is many aspiring electronic artists that wouldn’t draw influence from his body of work.

Vertigo is easily the album of the year for us. I remember sitting on the bus home and listening to Wrong into Take Care and getting chills. I know I’ve stumbled across something special when I get goosebumps. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favour!

We all knew and loved him but 22, A Million dropped and changed our perspective on music, production and writing. The man is a genius.

There are a lot of artists in the electronic/pop realm come from a rock/metal background (us included) so for us the journey of Skrillex is a really inspiring one. We are big believers in innovation and trying to create something that is uniquely us. Skrillex captured the world’s attention doing exactly that.

It’s so great to see these guys go from strength to strength. What they have created is so damn real. Hearing “Listen to Soul, Listen to Blues” for the very first time and remembering being so damn inspired to be in the studio writing.
Well thought out answers guys! I wish you success with ‘I Needed You’ .
