Irish electronic-pop duo, Le Boom, comprising of Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon, are airing the ebullient new single, ‘Be There For You’. The track is taken from the band’s debut EP, All Of My Highs, due for release on May 3, and coinciding with a headline date at Thousand Island, London. The band will spend the summer months touring extensively, ticking off festival dates at Live At Leeds and Hit The North amongst others - full run of shows below.
Enabled by pristine pop production and the duo’s penchant for satin-smooth songwriting, ‘Be There For You’ is a well-oiled synth-pop cut, outlining the pair’s first foray upon 2019. “We played at Primavera in Barcelona last year. After our show we caught the end of Peggy Gou’s set on a small stage down near the beach, just as the sun was going down,” says Leech, when discussing the track. “It was probably a mixture of my post-show adrenaline comedown and Peggy’s class tunes but I found myself having a moment of ‘oh fuck, life is great’ - when I got home I decided to write a tune with a vibe that would remind me of that night.”
2018 signposted an exciting milestone for Le Boom, it was a year that found the pair performing across some of Europe’s largest festivals, including Primavera, Longitude, Body & Soul and Electric Picnic, whilst also taking their eccentric live show to Reykjavik, New York and Bilbao. The year also found the duo selling out an Irish headline tour - including a stop at Dublin’s 1000-capacity District 8 venue - and achieving playlist success at Spotify, attaining spots on ’New Music Friday’ & ‘Hot New Bands’ amongst others.
