As the recently passed on Leonard Cohen proved, it’s never too late to put your debut solo album. Moved To Duarte is just such a collection of recordings by LA-based artist Les Bohem who has seen scenes come and go with an additional background in screenwriting to boot.
That all lends to the four-sided effort wherein Bohem examines real life changes, beauty in mundanity and getting older. Speak Into My Good Eye is happy to host the exclusive premiere of the album’s latest single, “when we used to get high,” today.
On the track, Bohem paints an intimate, acoustic-led portrait of simpler times spent getting high and messing around with friends and what it all meant.
“I really was thinking a lot about my ill-spent youth and how much I missed my friends and about whether all of that fun might have meant anything. I remember thinking back then what an honest emotion friendship is. And every now and then, I really do think we could do it all again – but – like Merle said. ‘The hangovers hurt more than they used to.'”
Stream Les Bohem’s “when we used to get high” below and look for Moved To Duarte out December 9th.
