Brooklyn-based alternative queer duo Boyish unveil their spectacular new single ‘I Think I Hate It Here’, alongside a high-octane music video directed by Chase Denton.

While the theme of overwhelming anxiety runs deep within the song, it also deals with personal uncertainties and the hopelessness that ensues from it. 

“‘I Think I Hate it Here’ was written after a fight with an ex on a date night at the movies. For a long time I had been very anxious in movie theatres, and this particular fight was about how their anxiety ruined the night. The song is about feeling like you can’t match what someone wants from you. I always have had this deep fear that the more anxious someone realises I am, the more turned off they will be. I feel like sometimes I can’t do normal things that other people like to do on dates, so this song comes from a place of feeling undateable. It’s like the build up of a lifetime of feeling like you’re missing out on the little things, into one big burst of energy, but really behind it all there’s a lot of self-doubt and insecurity.” – Claire Altendahl, Boyish

Forthcoming EP ‘My Friend Mica’ is out this spring.
