Peter The Human Boy – “When We’re Old”


“When We’re Old” is a jangly, melodic gem from Peter The Human Boy’s debut album, Goodbye Summer. Alongside bandmates Gabriel Fischer, Patrick Stieger, Jannik Rieß, Vienna-based singer/songwriter Peter Mathis churns out a laid-back vein of lo-fi rock and jangle-pop — with Mac Demarco an audible influence. The debut album is described as “a personal farewell to a carefree youth.” “When We’re Old” is among numerous highlights, all tending to showcase soaring, melodic vocals and swaying guitar jangles. This track resonates with its strong melody and crisp, resonating production.

“When We’re Old” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Lush, Suave/Slacker, + Jangle-Rock.
