- Bloodboy Premieres New Song “Sex Crime” on SoundCloud
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Lexie Papilion, aka Bloodboy has delivered a new song “Sex Crime” via streaming music services. The song follows up "Important To The World" and premiered exclusively on PAPER Magazine.
The track is first taste from her upcoming debut album "Punk Adjacent", which is co-produced by Bloodboy and Taylor Locke.
She said about the new song, "This song is about a woman in her early 20s who is pursued by a young man in his late teens, and while she can't deny she feels a certain attraction to him, she ultimately decides he's too young. [The song is] a commentary on the rigidity of our legal system in regards to romantic relationships it deems inappropriate. While I believe there is no 'magic age' dictating our physical or emotional capacity to consent, I do believe we have a moral responsibility to recognize and accept the inherent power imbalance at play between two people when there is a large disparity in age."
- Bloodboy has created punk music and released a debut EP "Best of Bloodboy" including 6-track in 2016. But after the EP, she started to create her new era, and the debut album is set to be released in later 2018.
She said, "After I finished the record, my best friends and I were joking about the way our moms still try to score "cool points" with us by talking about the punk shows they went to when they were younger. I said "I doubt my mom was really in the scene; she was probably adjacent to the scene" and I immediately saw the parallel. There may be moments where I get close, but I'm likely never going to make a bona fide punk record and that's totally fine."
