Canadian artist Boniface is getting ready to roll out his self-titled debut record, which will be out on February 14 via Transgressive. Along with the announcement, he has shared the video for “Keeping Up,” a song that taps into the tragic beauty of finding people whom you can connect with deeply. Watch below:

On his new single, he shared:

“In high school I met some friends that changed me forever. They all thought different, acted different than anyone I’d met, but everything about them seemed so right and so safe to me. I was a weird music nerd and they played music in basements and after a few nights getting wasted together there was a deep, platonic love between us.

But love is complicated, and when you get close to people you start seeing the bad along with the good. You see the bad in yourself, the baggage you’re carrying and you realise everyone else has it too. You realise that no matter how hard you try, you’re going to make mistakes.

‘Keeping Up’ is about that realization. The first deep connections you make. The beauty and the tragedy of it all.”

Boniface will be hitting the UK in May:
