Last month, Lost Boy ? shared “Hollywood,” a wildly energetic punk song without abandon that quickly became one of my favorite tracks of the year.

It’s a sunny meditation centered around some dark subjects: “We hold each other’s hands in our graves,” sings frontman Davey Jones, and you’d be remiss not to believe him. Listen below.
