The track’s pop sound is infectious in all the right ways. Sonically, it also mirrors the internal emotions that Boyd felt while writing it.
“My song ‘Animal’ is a playful, energetic tune,” he says in a press release. “I want my music to show and reflect the diversity I am as a living human. My moods can be a roller coaster of experiences and emotions. When writing ‘Animal,’ I was in a dance feel-good mood, and the outcome reflects that exactly.”
These songs were all made during the COVID-19 pandemic when Boyd found he had downtime to work on a solo project. The songs reflect this time in his life, as well as his new journey through fatherhood after the birth of his daughter.
“[This project is] gonna be very diverse, but I feel I’m a diverse person,” Boyd says of his solo endeavors. “I feel that I don’t only have to do one thing. I think people can relate to that, especially in this day and age with new technologies.
“My plane playlist isn’t only rock or punk or ballads or R&B or pop or dance or house music or Latin music. My playlist is a mix-mash of anything that is relatable and makes me feel something. And that’s my life—it is a roller coaster of emotions and feelings. So I feel my solo project will reflect that.”
