It feels antithetical to the sound of most queer love songs yet is fuelled by the rejection and heartbreak from a boy he once knew. Fred’s cross generational inspirations move from The Smiths to Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Rufus Wainwright to his adolescent idol Troye Sivan who inspired him to detail his own honest experiences of love and unpack the formative years of his life.
