As nocturnal life starts coming back, UK artist Cj Pandit helps us ease into the nighttime socializing in new single “Boyfriend.” Drenched with smooth basslines and silvery vocals, “Boyfriend” is a groovy art-pop that makes you spin and embrace the freedom of your inner party animal who has been hibernating for the past year and a half. 

In his own words, “Through the whole process of writing these songs, I wanted to embrace imagined personas, build scenarios and ask questions in my head that we could then leap from. 

 For ‘Boyfriend,’ it was what would happen if Prince, Bowie and Peter Gabriel all got fucked up and wrote a song together. And every time something would make us laugh, or question whether we were pushing things too far, we dialled them up more. I wanted to embrace the outrageous ways of performing, the escapism of the wild nights we’re all getting back to. 

 To me it’s the song to strut around your bedroom whilst you get ready, and is playing loud whilst you walk into CBGB’s for the night of your life.“
