Lionel Boy has just shared the third single from his upcoming, debut, self-titled album. The silky smooth “Mango Michelada” is an artfully laid-back tune ripe for spinning on repeat indefinitely. It’s easy to get lost in the groovy melancholy Lionel spills on the refrain of the track.
“Last February, I moved into a rehearsal space in San Pedro.” Shares Lionel Boy. “The space reeked of febreeze and various chemicals they used to mask the smell of stale cigarettes. My drummer Jacqueline and I would mess around for hours in that space singing nonsense. At the time, we were in the habit of drinking Mango Micheladas at every session. On one of those days, we started out cracking jokes and ended up with a song we couldn’t stop working on. COVID-19 hit about a week later and I ended up having to move out of the studio, but we continued to work on this track throughout the pandemic.”
