About this song
One foot planted firmly in minimal early punk ala Ramones, yet somehow boast big pop songs. Literal in their approach, “Boyfriend” can be summed up with the lyric “I don’t wanna be your boyfriend”, It’s not rocket science and that is the point. “The Soaks want to make intense, simple punk music without all the macho/aggressive stuff that sometimes comes with it,” says frontman Jordan Clark,
“These songs are straight forward and fun on the surface, yet address very complicated experiences in my life ranging from divorce and depression, to dependency and self medication.”
