Indie Love Song: City of Lovers by Baby Monster
This week’s love song is City of Lovers by Baby Monster, an electronic duo from LA. The song is the title track from their new 5-track EP which is actually due out tomorrow, June 5th. I got to preview this light and airy summery tune some weeks ago on Soundcloud and couldn’t wait to share it with all of you!
Here’s a bit of trivia about the track: Daniel Sternbaum and Marty Larson Xu, the duo behind Baby Monster, wrote their upcoming EP simultaneously while in different cities so it features a unique fusion of their different environmental perspectives at the time. I seriously can’t wait to hear the rest of the album but for now, here’s what I can make out of the catchy and infectious chorus:
I want to be a father
I want to be a ghost
I want to be a lover
in the city of lovers
it ain’t so easy to get in here,
but it’s not so hard,
I want to be a boy again,
I want to be your first kiss,
I want to be a traveling train riding rails,
I want to be a highway stretching to the horizon…
