About the song Dear Boy’s Ben Grey says: “‘Love Interest’ is a song written for our clumsy years. We wanted to write something recklessly optimistic about love and the joys of being out of your depth. Pulp had a big influence on this song. I wasn’t old enough to have them on my high school walls but whenever I listen to them now, there’s a bizarre sense memory of something I never experienced. That’s a quality we were hoping to nuzzle up to while recording. Disco 2000 meet Disco 2018.”Dear Boy wrote their debut EP in Vauxhall, London. Tracked byChad Bamford (Spiritualized)and mixed byMichael Patterson (Trent Reznor, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), theDEAR BOYEP was released in September, 2013.
