Dear Boy are definitely a pop band worth keeping an eye on. With a long awaited album coming on October 01, their sound has been imitated by so many others. With a group of good looking guys and a sound that literally defines itself, their new record Forever Sometimes has been long awaited. Today they’ve dropped their latest single “Swan Dives” and it’s a keeper. Stream it below to hear for yourself.
The opening of this new song feels very personal. Though the song is very up and full of emotion it’s a slower track. The slowness of the song and the curdle of lyrics feels important to the song. While the dog leaves the frame the lyrics are very personal. When he returns to frame things are back to normal with verses about love. The almost unadorned lyrics and the physical standouts of their lead singer sitting alone let you know what’s happening in the song. It’s definitely a nice touch to an already pop lead album.
The song can be heard above via YouTube or wherever you stream music. Their new full length can be preordered from them here. Dear Boy can be seen in Los Angeles, CA at El Rey Theatre on October 28 and at Elsewhere Zone 1 in Brooklyn, NY on November 03.
