Passion Fruit Boys, recently announced their debut, self titled album Passion Fruit Boys will drop on October 7, 2022 via Telefono. Along with the announce, Duncan Shea and Conor Belcher, aka Passion Fruit Boys, share their new single and video for album opener “Silver Scar.”
Passion Fruit Boys on “Silver Scar” “Silver Scar” was written 11 years ago, during a bout of deep depression. I had recently been fired from a job I liked, had watched most of my friends leave town for bigger things and was working an overnight shift at a corner store in college town. Walking home just before dawn I saw my girlfriend’s car outside another guy’s house and pretty much had the song finished by the time I got home. It’s about as straightforward as it gets, a kaleidoscopic mess of all the thoughts, images and memories that first come to mind when you realize a lover has let you down. Nothing fancy but it’s honest, and I think that’s why we’re still playing it.
Despite its simplicity it turned out to be kind of tough to pin down in a recording. Over the years it’s been recorded four times that I can think of and each time it always felt stale or off in some way. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the toughest to capture. For some reason, while recording the PFB record and having almost forgotten about the song, Duncan and I tracked everything in what felt like no time at all and it was immediately clear that we’d gotten it right. I think it was Duncan adding a more insistent, driving bass line that made the difference for me, kept it moving.
