Consider the power of the vibe. After all, the power of positive vibes transcends simple categorization or a Sopranos meme. A good vibe is a cool breeze and ice cream on a sweltering
afternoon. It is the athlete whose sixth sense and unselfishness makes everyone on the court play better. It is those Bob Ross videos where with a gentle voice and a few quick brush strokes, the painter conjures arcadian beauty. Good vibes are something that the modern world desperately needs.
Enter Lionel Boy and his new single “Flower Girl” released today via Innovative Leisure. The song’s cool and melodic bass lines slow things down, creating a mood that allows you take a deep breath and simply enjoy the moment. Lionel Boy tells us “This was the first track that Jonny and I worked on. It’s about watching someone close to you become who they’re meant to be. I get to witness my partner grow everyday and succeed in places that bring her joy. It feels a lot like watching a flower blossom. She’s my flower girl.”
It’s the first new music from the Hawaiian native since his debut Who Is Dovey EP was released last year. The EP served a perfect introduction to Lionel Boy’s sound and included songs “Lately,” “Summer Fun”, “Are You Happy Yet” and “Lost.”
Native to Hawaii and now living in Long Beach, his sound mixes spacey synthesizers, impromptu breakbeats & bedroom pop. Today’s sonic offering will be featured on his debut album which is expected soon. Watch this space.
