79.5 “Boy Don’t Be Afraid” single in the webstore now
With the announcement of their long awaited, highly anticipated debut full length release, 79.5 drops a new and revamped version of their underground classic Boy Don’t Be Afraid. Producer Leon Michels took it back in the studio and made it into a proper two stepper, slowed it down a touch, and added percussion and Wurly. The result is another sure shot side for the dance floor from one of New York City’s most adored underground acts. Like many of the girl group classics, Boy Don’t Be Afraid is a song about love. But beyond that, it is a song about being—being hopeful, being romantic, being brave. A romantic stance and a declaration of love through melody.
