Lionel Boy Shares New Song + Video

Last week, Lionel Boy, the newest signing for LA tastemakers Innovative Leisure shared “Lost,” a song which The FADER described as “a detuned slacker-pop song that builds to a satisfyingly down-tempo guitar hook”. Today he is following up with the breezy and buoyant “Summer Fun”. Both songs are from the upcoming Who Is Dovey? EP, out June 26th. Lionel Boy also shared the socially distanced live performance video of “Summer Fun”.

LISTEN TO “SUMMER FUN” HERE

“Summer Fun” is an ode to his days at summer camp in Oahu:

“I don’t know what you guys got going on in the mainland, but back on Oahu during the summer time we got all these elementary kids in this program called Summer Fun. It’d at the school you just spent all year at, but with kids from all over, and you just played all day. Anyway, after watching that show on Hulu, Pen15, I thought it’d be funny to sing about some childhood memories. My first girlfriend was during Summer Fun. Talk about holdin hands and passin notes and all that haha. But once it was done, all these kids would split up and head back to their school districts. So I never really saw her after that. There was a lot of New Edition inspiration throughout this one. “Cool it Now” to be specific.”
