Buuut then I realize I'm just tripping and talking to myself again.

Lionel Boy releases a video for "Lately" off his EP Who Is Dovey? When asked about the video, Lionel had this to say: "Two summers ago, Casey (Lui Liu) and I drove up the Oregon coast to visit some friends in Seattle. We documented our drive with the intention of making a music video for a completely different project but the clips didn't end up working. Nearly a year later, when I had just finished demoing "Lately" from home, Casey decided to mess around with the old footage to the song. She threw up a 20-second clip on Instagram for fun that we pretty much forgot about until the single‘s release this past June. With not much else to do on lock down, we decided to play around one more time. We had all of these random clips of Casey running or kicking sand and I guess I spent 5 minutes filming a flying kite. When we found a way to fit them into the video, it was a really accomplished feeling. We were such different people on that trip and yet, I guess not much has changed. What we ended up with was a visual representation of the moments that make up a great trip."
The new EP by Lionel Boy titled "Who Is Dovey?" is officially out today, June 26th, 2020. It’s a mix of sunshine psych & soul infusing spacey synthesizers, impromptu breakbeats & bedroom pop with influences from his native home of Hawaii and has gathered early praise from Fader, Flood, Uproxx & NPR. Expect more from Lionel Boy throughout the year and into 2021. Mahalo!
