Track Of The Day: LibraLibra – ‘Loverboy’

Eccentric Brighton-based quartet LibraLibra return to the scene with 90s-based single ‘Loverboy’.

Ever wondered what a 90s “secret admirer board game” would look like in 2019? Look no further, because LibraLibra have got you covered. Glitter, pigtails and bucket-hats take precedent alongside lead-singer Beth Cannon’s original vocals, laden with deep and meaningful lyrics. Of the track, the band explain:

This song harks back to young me getting drunk at parties, falling madly in love, fucking it up, being labelled a slut, failing hard again and not really knowing what to do with all the feelings…

On the surface, ‘Loverboy’ is a fun, enthusiastic throwback to the popular ’90s game ‘Dream Phone’ when really, the lyrics hold a more emotional take on struggles with mental health and PTSD. It’s an easy listening pop banger that also relates to a lot of young adults who deal with the same emotions. Who doesn’t love a 90s throwback anyway?

‘Loverboy’ is out now. Catch LibraLibra live at the following dates:

12th April – Brighton Electric, Brighton (FREE ENTRY ‘Prom Night’)
3rd May – Liverpool Sound City Festival
