Check Out: LOL Boys - "Get Close to Me"


We were a little skeptical about what a song by a group called LOL Boys would sound like too, but then we heard the LA-via-Montreal duo’s first single from their upcoming EP Changes, “Get Close to Me.” Over a minimalistic, throbbingly tropical beat (do we hear a rainstick?), the singer Angelina Lucero (she’s a frequent collaborator of LOL Boys’) delivers a sometimes-autotuned, chopped-and-screwed vocal take of repeated entreaties that sound so isolated it’s equal parts sexy and haunting – but what’s really interesting about the track is that groove, simple, smooth, and unrelentingly catchy. Changes is out on Friends of Friends July 17.
