It’s been a little over a month since we were blessed with BOYS LIKE GIRLS’ first new song in 11 years, ‘BLOOD AND SUGAR.’ We’ve been vibing to it nonstop. Now that they’ve given us time to process it and their long-awaited return, they’ve released their second single, ‘LANGUAGE,’ and it’s an absolute banger! But are we surprised? Absolutely not.
“They say the two universal languages are mathematics and music. I suck at math, but I can tell you, having played some decent-sized shows in non-English speaking territories, that the latter is true for sure.”
Martin Johnson, lead vocalist
While we absolutely love the lyrics, it honestly transcends language. It’s a straight-up bop. We love the bass, the drums, Martin’s voice, and just everything about this song. There’s literally nothing not to like. We can’t wait to hear this one live.
Lyrics We Love
“There’s tiny galaxies all over your skin,
biting your lip was the original sin.
You’re saying nothing, but i’m listening.”
Ready To See Them Live?
Speaking of hearing ‘LANGUAGE’ live, BOYS LIKE GIRLS are going on tour! They’ll be embarking on The Speaking Our Language Tour, which kicks off September 17th in Charlotte, NC. The lineup is stacked with State Champs (at all dates), The Ready Set, LOLO, and more at select dates! If you haven’t already, you can get tickets here. Here are a few setlist staples we can’t wait to hear live.
This was, is, and will forever be the soundtrack to our summer. It’s simply one of their most iconic songs. It’s also the perfect song to sway to with your besties.
‘Heart Heart Heartbreak’
The opening track to Love Drunk. It’s such a catchy, high-energy song. We’ll definitely be dancing and singing along at the top of our lungs exactly as it’s meant to be.
‘Two Is Better Than One’
They’ve performed this live plenty of times with just Martin singing, and it’s been amazing. But since LOLO will be performing on some of the dates, will she come on stage to perform the duet? We’re not sure. But we just think it would be an insanely cool collab.
