HEY! LISTEN: Lucy and La Mer -- "Blue Dress"

Nothing well ever convince me that the song "Girl Crush" is about someone who....wants to be the woman that her dude crush is dating? The fuck? Straight people, are you ok????

But there's certainly a lot of gray area between wanting to be someone and being attracted to them. In my experience, at least, that gray area pretty much vanished after I actually came out! Haven't felt that way since! But I digress!

The LA band Lucy & La Mer explore that confusing feeling in "Blue Dress." It's a breezy pop confection layered with banjos that digs into some very complex social dynamics. The song's protagonist runs up against some confusing feelings at a house party, and the band launches into a full-fledged celebration of what will undoubtedly be a pivotal moment in this person's life. "Blue Dress" is fun, catchy, and affectionate; a "welcome home" message to anyone who is celebrating their first Pride living out and having a ball.
