Los Angeles-based band Dear Boy have shared their new single, “Wet Clothes“. The new track is the latest pre-release single to be lifted from their debut full-length album, out later this year on Last Gang Records.
“Wet Clothes” is a song about the nature of loss and the bittersweet comfort of memory. Dear Boy’s Ben Grey says of the song, “Anything can be an emotional trigger when you miss someone, in the case of this song, the feeling of the pouring rain. Something like that can make you feel close to someone again even though you know in your heart you’ve never been farther away. For me, this is the quintessential Dear Boy song. Each of us has our favorite from the album, and ‘Wet Clothes’ is mine.”
This Friday, Dear Boy will be in Bogota, Colombia to perform at the Estereo Picnic festival and the band will return to Mexico in April to perform at Pa’l Norte festival in Monterrey. Set times are listed below.
“Wet Clothes” follows up recent singles “Say When” and “(On My Mind),” which Flood Magazine described as “indebted to romantic ’80s synth-pop and yearning ’90s Brit-pop. It’s like a robust camera flash—bright and bursting new wave.”
