Bonjour Fucker!//


OCD Girlfriend//

single 29/4/20

HWB's debut album // Jim experiments with altered guitar tunings and spices up his songwriting with edgier, more personal lyrics. He alienates core fanbase - mum and dad.

What timezone had to say about it:

Don't be fooled by Jim Sheppard's angelic face and polite demeanour. Dig deeper and you'll find that this Brit washed up in Paris is in fact a devilishly good songwriter with a biting wit. The bouncy electronic loops and pared-down lo-fi feel of his songs are betrayed by their acerbic lyrics. The music is playful, sometimes almost twee, and full of knowing winks to other artists. Hard Working Boss has created a new kind of pop, where faux-blasé lyrics meet beautiful melodies.

29/04/20: After a 7-year break, Hard Working Boss unleashes OCD Girlfriend onto the world.

In contrast to the hastily cobbled-together video, the cover art is surprisingly well drawn. The artist particularly enjoyed "getting the breasts just right".

Jazzmag video

If we ever had any doubts that HWB was  a colossal pervert, this lo-fi video finally puts the matter to rest.

In Britain, "jazzmag" is a slightly archaic term for "pornographic magazine". You probably didn't realize you would be learning so much culture here, did you?

A whopping

75% of viewers consider this man to be a fiend.
