Though spring has only just arrived, it’s never too early for sunshine and summertime vibes. Hong Kong Boyfriend returns to us this week with just that on “Sharlene”, their first single of 2021. Synthesizing hypnotic indie-rock with lulling lo-fi hip-hop, Hong Kong Boyfriend delivers a summertime anthem with their newest cut. Equally sentimental and romantic, calculated and effortless, melodic and energetic – Hong Kong Boyfriend spares no expense on “Sharlene”. With his signature (and impressive) affinity for songwriting and vocals, “Sharlene” is a chill track perfect for both a summertime kickback or a night out. It seems like only a matter of time until he hits the mainstream, so consider this an invitation to add this to your weekly rotation, and jump on the wave before somebody else tries to put you on. You can thank us later.
