Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Wakita Monari delivers her second release “Boy Friend”. The song keeps the Reagan Era vibes intact, as expected, but also manages to sound incredibly joyful and almost downright giddy. I swore I was listening to some vintage Erasure on some of those synth leads! Monari trades her disaffected vocals from “In the City” for a trumpet-like deliver that makes me wish she was singing about me. Monari goofs through the kitchen and leafs through Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with considerable charisma. So if “Boy Friend” doesn’t put Wakita Monari on your list, well then you should probably check your pulse: the charm goes to 11.
