Thunder Bay, ON-based pop duo Lockyer Boys features brothers Will and Charlie Lockyer. The duo made their first steps as a cover band, quickly gaining recognition for great harmonies and multi-instrumental talent.
The official release date for “LATKD” is June 3, 2022, but we were lucky enough to get the premiere, which means YOU can watch it a day early!
The track was written virtually during the COVID pandemic with Grammy-nominated producer Jeff Dawson, and Alan Poettker from These Kids Wear Crowns. The catchy and uplifting pop gem is about being present, living in the moment, and trying to experience genuine happiness.
“Will and I try to make people happy with our music,” says Charlie Lockyer. “Teenagers and maybe even young adults are often ‘happy being sad.’ Why can’t we be happy being happy? That’s the message of ‘LATKD.’”
Lockyer Boys are currently completing their debut album, which features their poignant songwriting and songs co-written with Jeff Dawson, Shawn Hook, Scott Helman, Daniel Powter, Brian Howes, Alan Poettcker, and Akylla.
