“The tunes comprise the majority of “Cold Hearted Disaster.” In a way the album, on which Boerum sings and plays guitar, is misnamed; it’s neither cold hearted nor a disaster. An emotion- ally frigid writer never could have penned lyrics to “Feels Like Hell,” its first single. “Let me out so I can breathe. Feels like hell inside of me. Take your time and tell me how I lost my heart inside a dream.” Boerum came of age listening to every- one from Johnny Cash to the Beatles to soul singers like Etta James. “Growing up in the ’90s my older brother was the cool kid, so I would listen to what he listened to, which was alt rock like Nirvana and Foo Fighters,” he said. “So I kind of have a sound like ’50s and ’60s soul mixed with some aggression from the ’90s.””
