Boys Like Girls at NorVa

July 17 2024

7:30 p.m.
NorVa 317 Monitcello Ave., Norfolk, VA

BOYS LIKE GIRLS ignite this new era with “Blood and Sugar.” On the track, neon synths wrap around a stomping guitar as the chorus cleverly reminds, “Even though the girl’s a look-er, we’re only blood and sugar, right?” With a swaggering bridge punctuated by warbling synths and howls straight-the-heart, it’s classic Boys Like Girls with an infusion of experience and wisdom. “I think of it as a relationship with a bunch of empty calories,” Johnson reveals. “You’re talking about how human beings are just blood and sugar. You might fear this girl, but we’re all just skin and bones, so why can’t you move on? Sonically and dynamically, I hope it’s like getting shot out of a cannon ten times. It’s something we can’t wait to go out and play.”
