Irish electronic-pop duo, Le Boom, comprising of Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon, are today sharing the flawlessly choreographed video for new single, ‘Just Want To’ which comes directed by Alina Maria Rancier, featuring dancers, Bailey Anglin and Wendell Gray. The single is taken from the band’s debut EP, ‘All Of My Highs’, due for release on May 3, 2019 when it will coincide with a headline date at Thousand Island, London. The band will spend the summer months touring extensively, ticking off festival dates at It Takes A Village, Live At Leeds and Hit The North as well as headline sets at Trinity Ball and Red Bull Free Gaff.
Following hot on the heels of the EP’s debut single, ‘Be There For You’, this second effort rides upon heavy duty synth lines and butter-smooth melodies. Armed with similar sonic artillery as the duo’s previous releases, ‘Just Want To’ looks to dissect social insecurities and the discomfort we feel when shoehorned into social events. Speaking about the track, Leech says: “‘Just Want To’ is about being part of a scene that you feel you don’t fit into. That feeling we get when we look at the people around us and they all look like life just comes easily to them – like they’ve got stuff worked out.”
2018 signposted an exciting milestone for Le Boom, it was a year that found the pair performing across some of Europe’s largest festivals, including Primavera, Longitude, Body & Soul and Electric Picnic, whilst also taking their eccentric live show to Reykjavik, New York and Bilbao. The year also found the duo selling out an Irish headline tour – including a stop at Dublin’s 1000-capacity District 8 venue – and achieving playlist success at Spotify, attaining spots on ’New Music Friday’ & ‘Hot New Bands’ amongst others.
