Discovery: Venus As A Boy

Venus As A Boy is the recording name of bedroom pop artist Theo Lee, based in Los Angeles, USA. His latest ambient electronic is called Reaching For The Sky and it’s really quite breath-taking.

By Graeme Smith

At its heart, Reaching For The Sky is an instrumental piece but it deploys vocals as an instrument so wonderfully. The result is something that is interesting, textured and surprisingly organic for an electronic piece.

As a songwriter and producer, Theo frequently collaborates on his tracks and one of his main partners is his girlfriend Jenna Noelle. She provides vocals the beautifully delicate vocals here. The pair have created such a piece of wonderful optimism in Reaching For The Sky that I had to share it.
