First a boy silver-screen star then a YouTube sensation, Troye Sivan is now tackling the Billboard charts and headlining his second tour in the United States at the ripe age of 21. Pairing his light, yet baritone voice with synth pop and emotional lyrics, the Australian’s album Blue Neighbourhood touched No. 7 on the U.S. charts. His nirvanic, punchy single “Youth” is catching airwaves. The openly gay star teamed up with fellow young up-and-comer Alessia Cara for his new track “Wild,” for which the video depicts boys falling in love. Against a flashing backdrop of LED lights, the slim Sivan’s youth is evident when the ball of energy takes the stage at concerts, dropping feathery vocals and freely flitting to every beat, lost in a dream world he created.
