”The Norwegian internet sensation laughing through the heartbreak”. That’s how NME described Boy Pablo, which both is the name of a band and an alias for its bandleader, Bergen wonderkid Nicolás Pablo Rivera Muñoz. In short time Boy Pablo has gained significant national and international popularity with a melodic, playful, swooning and somewhat melancholy soft pop – partly helped by the viral video to Everytime, partly because Pablo and his fellow musicians are simply irresistible. When you see them at Way Out West, you’ll understand.
Muñoz began the Boy Pablo project in 2015. The Everytime video, uploaded on Youtube in 2017, received millions of views within weeks. Roy Pablo, the first EP, was released the same year and Soy Pablo, a follow-up EP, came in 2018. A full-length album should be on its way.
Boy Pablo will play at Way Out West on Friday August 14.
