Pretoria based electro-folk musician Franco Bolleurs aka An Awkward Social has just unveiled the lyric video for his new single “Games”. It’s taken from his debut album of the same name.
Texx and the City recently had the following to say about it: “With its ever-relatable themes and its dynamic soundscape, “Games” is a strong first offering from an artist who’s already fashioned a strong voice from himself”.
An Awkward Social comments on the dark inspiration behind the song: ”Games is a track about dealing with depression. It’s a song about the overwhelming feeling that there is nothing to look forward to in life and the little victories that get us through each day, because tomorrows always seem brighter than today’s.”

Originally from Middelburg, Mpumalanga but now based in Pretoria, Franco Bolleurs has been writing songs and making music all his life. He started taking the role of producer seriously in 2017 when he could finally afford the last pieces of gear and software needed.
He is a semi-trained pianist and guitarist, but learned everything else from the internet. Franco is very independent. He wanted to be able to write, compose, record, produce, mix and master every song himself. Drawn to music with strong lyrics he believes that every song he writes should have some sort of message.
I’m not a massive fan of An Awkward Social‘s musical genre, but I have to say that I’m impressed. Check out the lyric video below:
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely making an effort to check out An Awkward Social live. I want to see else what he gets up to. “Games” is available on the following digital platforms: Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Tidal, SoundCloud and Bandcamp.
