Lost Boy ? – “Graves”
Last month, Lost Boy ? shared “Hollywood,” a wildly energetic punk song without abandon that quickly became one of my favorite tracks of the year. Probably to due the success of that single, their label Double Double Whammy has decided to push back the digital release of the New York band’s debut album, Canned, until March in order to do a proper vinyl press with Brooklyn-based Old Flame Records. While that’s disappointing news, the band makes the long wait a little easier with “Graves,” a brand new B-side that’s less propulsive than “Hollywood” but no less effective. 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.
