Brandon Colbein is desperate. “Do anything to have his life / Do anything to be your guy,” he sings. With “Boy You Like,” the singer-songwriter lets every ache for a lover pour into the melody, each layered not unlike thorny roses. Known for writing songs for Hayley Kiyoko, Zayne, Bea Miller, and others, Colbein carries his ear candy sensibilities into much of his work. His solo releases, dating back to 2016, are so undeniably him, it’s hard to understand why he isn’t a household name… yet. Yet being the operative word. His day in the sun is coming.
