24TH JANUARY 2024 | HEIST258 | SINGLE
Opening on a drum fill crunchier than granola, Boyfriend enters the world like a midtempo mixtape for the high-school dance you never had. Weepy-wah guitar tones drip from the two-step rhythm like syrup from the spoon and a loose after-hours milieu permeates the tracks outer limits. Horns join the guitars and provide a Tyler, The Creator jolt to proceedings as Lei throws down the killer blow: “I’m hopelessly fucked up and confused.” This is a soft indie slow-jam for the Steve Lacey generation of iPhone producers and digital mixtape marauders.
