Say hello to the LOL Boys and their exquisite bass-heavy music, which is topped with all you need for a perfect summer chill: Chicago house and disco tunes flavored with tropical tendencies. LOL Boys are one-half Canadian (living in Montreal) and American (LA-based) and have been around for some years now. Gaining recognition as local heroes of the tripped-out post-disco scene and with last year’s remarkable Bubbles EP (grab for free here) the Boys are close to dropping their next EP Changes later this summer.. Here’s their 10×4 9×4.
1. Your most memorable show?
This is a tough one, but playing Piknic Electronik last year in Montreal was an amazing experience. The party is on an island in the middle of city and the vibe is exactly what you would want for an outdoor show.
2. What goes in your coffee?
We drink our coffee black.
4. Write a non-promotional paragraph.
Once upon a time, I spied on you. Bud Light Lime in my hand, and I stand over there, and listen to your little lies about your cool life. You say she will be your wife, but I am. Whites red, irises brown, and your eyes wide. You apologize to me when I see you do a line, but like, I’m open-minded and it’s fine. I don’t do the shit, but I don’t really mind it. I’m not heartless but I’m hardened, a rotten rooth. It’s my party, couldn’t cry if I anted to. And the more you taunt me the more I think I’m wanting you. And ever since, you’re the prince, and I’m the one that’s haunting you.
5. A film or book that greatly influenced your music?
Home Alone and Say Cheese and Die! by R.L. Stine.
7. Do you believe in the paranormal?
I think the fact that we exist within this universe is paranormal. So yes, I suppose.
8. Are you interested in politics?
9. Raging or chilling out?
Chilling out while raging.
10. One thing you can’t live without?
The Internet, of course.
