Rising electro-pop duo BOY2K recently dropped their latest single, “Close Friends,” a sexy, club-ready anthem about the temptations of tantalizing online flings.
“Close Friends” – the first original single the duo has released following the debut of their EP B2K released last year, which earned praise from champions like LGBTQ Music Chart, EQ Music, Mundane Magazine, and Prelude Press, – challenges the double-entendres of flirty online conversations, oscillating between validation and seduction, and escapism of someone sliding in your DMs.
“To us, ‘Close Friends’ embodies the idea of ‘Music For The People’ in its use of world sounds and the hilariously relatable experience of someone sliding into your DM. It’s fun, it makes you move, and honestly, makes us LOL when we sing it. It feels like a bop you can get down to with your bestie. Just like us when we made it.” – Boy Untitled
As they continue to break boundaries between music and the digital world, BOY2K has also been leveraging Web3 and NFTs, creating a fandom that – like their art – is at once nostalgic and futuristic. With fan communities at the core of their project, the duo released a “Close Friends” demo earlier this year via the Web3 crowd-sourcing platform Tribly, which also granted its holders access to a Twitter-based “Close Friends Community.”
