Phony Ppl’s “Before You Get a Boyfriend” is an Ice-Cold Summer Daydream [PREMIERE]

Brooklyn’s r&b kingpins return with a selection from their upcoming album, due at the end of 2018.

Three long years have passed since Phony Ppl stormed the r&b spectrum with the 2015 breakout, Yesterday’s Tomorrow. But it won’t be much longer until the Brooklyn upstarts share their next full-length project.

Today, the campaign commences with the premiere of “Before You Get a Boyfriend” and a dreamy clip to boot. Here the band crashes a bodega, hoping to catch the eye of a woman working the counter, only to realize that despite their most charming efforts, they’re not quite fit for the job. And so it goes.

The track builds out on a palette entirely their own; buoyant bubblegum basslines, sweet and simple summer melodies, and all of the heartwarming resolve.
