We’ve been more than ravenous for new Bloodboy music this past year after the Los Angeles based surfer-turned-musician thrilled us with her blazing pop rock time and time again since her debut two years ago, culminating in a superbly brazen and incendiary EP named Best of Bloodboy. Her return last month with Sex Crime was much cause for celebration, and now Lexie Papillion has followed that rambunctiously smoldering tune up with another homerun of a sultry sizzling, charismatic pulling song named ‘Is Now A Good Time To Ruin Your Life?’. Signature broiling guitars and her ever impassioned, heated vocals keep us charmed and swooning. The punky garage rock and grungy pop of ‘Is Now A Good Time To Ruin Your Life?’ is big and bold, emphatic and glamorous. And it leaves us even more excited for Bloodboy’s forthcoming debut album Punk Adjacent than we were before, which we didn’t think was possible. You can find the track on iTunes, here.

Those who are patient are well rewarded, especially when it comes to Bloodboy and her sultry romping music. It took the Los Angeles based surfer-turned-musician nearly a year to release her latest single, Sex Crime. In the meanwhile, we’ve nearly gone unhinged, wondering when and if she’d re-emerge with new material. Lexie Papilion more than enraptured us in the past with her fiery magnetism and gutsy spirit. The songwriter, producer, and (scintillating) performer pelted our hearts with a dashing brand of rambunctiously smoldering pop punk. Today, she marks her return with that very same blazing confidence and igneous charisma on Sex Crime, a crunchy jangling, burly whirling swarm of pop rock, overflowing with Papilion’s ever impassioned wails and white-hot yelps, which tend to remind us of Karen O. The cocky strutting, melodic


single is taken from Bloodboy’s forthcoming debut album Punk Adjacent, set for release this summer. 

Papilion, who wrote and co-produced the song, explains: ‘”Sex Crime" is about a woman in her early 20s who is pursued by a young man in his late teens, and while she can’t deny she feels a certain attraction to him, she ultimately decides he’s too young. Sex Crime is meant to reflect the nuanced nature of love and lust, as well as a comment on the rigidity of our legal system in regards to romantic relationships it deems inappropriate. 

While I believe there is no “magic age” dictating our physical or emotional capacity to consent, I do believe we have a moral responsibility to recognize and accept the inherent power imbalance at play between two people when there is a large disparity in age.’ We can breath much easier now that we know a Bloodboy full length is on its way. For now, you can purchase Sex Crime from iTunes, here, and bop out to the frisky, feisty tune to your heart’s content.

I’ve been more than eagerly awaiting Bloodboy to re-surface this year after Lexie Papillion enamored me with her debut EP last year. Cheekily entitled Best Of Bloodboy, the six track EP really did deliver some of 2016′s best new music in the form of the Los Angeles based surfer turned musician’s vibrant rousing pop rock. Bloodboy carries forth as one of my favorite emerging indie artists with chunky jolting Important To The World, on which spunky pop punk and vigorous synthpop become one. If Karen O, Grace Mitchell, and Charli XCX alighted on a three way collaboration, it just might sound as raspy divine and frisky strapping as Bloodboy’s exuberant new single. Important To The World is out as a single now. You can also stream the track off Soundcloud below.

We’ve shared some fabulous tunes off of King Henry’s debut EP, Don’t Stay Away, but now that the Los Angeles producer has released his four track record, it’d be egregious not to partake in more its talent bejeweled tunes. After all, each of King Henry’s songs features guest talent that IHM has been profusely supporting. Track number three off of Don’t Stay Away even features one of our favorite emerging artists from LA, Bloodboy. She lends her husky deep, fiery impassioned vocals to vast sprawling, torrid throbbing Pulse, leaving us reeling with their combined ferocity. Stream King Henry’s Dont’ Stay Away EP in full on Soundcloud and purchase, here.

Surfer turned musician Bloodboy has fully captivated me with her feisty spirited, gritty glamorous music this past half a year, even mesmerizing me with her stage presence and a passionate performance when she made her San Francisco live debut at Popscene. I’ve been looking forward to this exciting Los Angeles starlet’s debut EP for some time now, and yesterday, she finally unveiled the six track record for our listening pleasure. Despite it being her very first EP, Lexie Papillion has cheekily named her record Best Of Bloodboy, and that’s exactly the sort of wittiness that I’ve come to adore about Bloodboy and her music. Alongside the singles we’ve already shared and been swept away by comes opening track Fuck Yourself, a catchy rousing, melodic propulsive fusion of pop and rock brimming with moxie and mettle. As always, Bloodboy’s fiery confidence and raspy impassioned vocals bring me to think of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O. These qualities carry fully into her live performance, too. You can stream Bloodboys’ debut EP in full on Soundcloud.

It’s been just over a month since I gleefully caught emerging artist Bloodboy at Popscene, yet it feels like it was but yesterday that I was staring at the stage, mesmerized by Lexie Papillion’s Karen O like charisma. The Los Angeles based surfer turned musician has already given us two of my favorite songs of the year in the form of Human Female and Hey Kid. She now reveals a third indomitable fusion of alt rock and pop punk named Keep Your Disease. This snarling examination of social constructs is fiercely hooking and sexy smoldering. It leaves me hungering passionately for Bloodboy’s debut EP, expected to arrive this fall. I also can’t wait to catch Bloodboy live again.
