The Boy Least Likely To follow their happy-go-lucky break up anthem Things Are Looking Up with the equally joyous Get Into The Summer, a song that practically demands that we all get out and enjoy ourselves this summer. Another perfect addition to any post-lockdown summer playlist as the world tentatively opens up again, Get Into The Summer is a breezy little beachfiller that brings to mind The Lemonheads, Belle and Sebastian and Badly Drawn Boy, with jangling guitars and pianos joyfully thumping away. Brimming with summery joy and excitement at the same time as being undercut with a melancholy and a feeling of sadness, the Boy Least Likely To are back with their own peculiar brand of exuberant pop melancholy.

As we look for reassurance and comfort in this turbulent world there is something incredibly welcome about brand new music from The Boy Least Likely To. After all, no other band manages to sound quite so uplifting and joyous at the same time as giving voice to our everyday fears and anxieties.

As singer Jof Owen explains it, “We actually wrote the music and the chorus for this song years ago, before The Best Party Ever came out, but it just never seemed to be the right time for it. Then in January and February of this year as people began to talk hopefully about the world opening up again, the words in the chorus kept coming back to me, and the rest of it came really quickly. It felt like everyone was just bursting to get outside and enjoy themselves this Summer and it felt like the song was bursting to get out too.


hay fever
the summer’s almost here
and soon it will be over
we should be eating chips along the pier and watching the sun set

let’s get away from everything
we’ll go some place we’ve never been

there’s a cool box
on the passenger seat
a bottle of tequila and two tubs of ice cream
that are slowly melting

we’ve got to get out
and get into the summer
we’ve got to get out and get into the summer

I wonder
if we lived by the sea
would we be just as happy
or get bored of it eventually like we do with most things

I wish I was able to see
all of those things you see in me

I was only
thinking the other day
about Belinda Carlisle and it reminded me
of the summer I met you

we’ve got to get out
and get into the summer
we’ve got to get out and get into the summer

oh where do the summer’s go
I didn’t even notice that I was getting old

in the morning
we’ll go back to our lives
in that damp depressing office but if we look outside
and the sun’s still shining

we’ve got to get out
and get into the summer
we’ve got to get out and get into the summer
