Dublin-based electronic-pop duo, Le Boom are sharing the video for their new single, 'Just Want To', taken from the forthcoming EP, 'All Of My Highs' (out May 3).
Directed by Alina Maria Rancier on Long Island, NY, the flawlessly choreographed clip perfectly mirrors the track's LCD-Soundsystem-esque synths and swooning rhythms.
Taken from the forthcoming EP, 'All Of My Highs' (out May 3), 'Just Want To' thematically picks apart social insecurities - the toe-curling trepidation when shoehorned into social events; feeling pressured to engage, and respond to people for the sake of it. Leech argues dancing is a way to release that energy - a notion well-evidenced in this clip.
Le Boom had quite the thrilling introduction throughout 2018, performing across some of Europe’s largest festivals - Primavera, Body & Soul and Electric Picnic to-boot - whilst also taking their eccentric live show to Reykjavik, New York and Bilbao. The duo continued by selling out an Irish headline tour - including a stop at Dublin’s 1000-capacity District 8 venue - and achieving
playlist success at Spotify, attaining spots on ’New Music Friday’ & ‘Hot New Bands’
Irish electronic-pop duo, Le Boom, comprising of Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon, are today sharing the flawlessly choreographed video for new single, ‘Just Want To’ which comes directed
by Alina Maria Rancier, featuring dancers, Bailey Anglin and Wendell Gray. The single is
taken from the band’s debut EP, ‘All Of My Highs’, due for release on May 3, 2019 when it
will coincide with a headline date at Thousand Island, London.
The band will spend the summer months touring extensively, ticking off festival dates at Live At Leeds and Hit The North amongst others - full run of shows below.
Following hot on the heels of the EP’s debut single, ‘Be There For You’, this second effort rides upon heavy-duty synth lines and butter-smooth melodies. Armed with similar sonic artillery as the duo’s previous releases, ‘Just Want To’ looks to dissect social insecurities and the discomfort we feel when shoehorned into social events.
Speaking about the track, Leech says:
“'Just Want To' is about being part of a scene that you feel you don't fit into. That feeling we get when we look at the people around us and
they all look like life just comes easily to them - like they've got stuff
