Jetlag Girl has the indie-summer vibes down-pat. The Baton Rouge-based indie duo just released the new single “My Boy” along with a brand new music video. And if you’re looking for a new cruising-with-the-windows-down tune, we think this is it.
“My Boy” is the duo’s latest after taking a break from new releases during the pandemic to focus on writing music. It’s a happy, chilled-out summer song a-la Mac Demarco and Real Estate. An ode of canine devotion, the song is dedicated to singer Christian Turner‘s first dog.
The song is simple but catchy with a thin surf-pop sound, probably thanks to the 60’s Tiesco single pick-up Telecaster it was recorded on. The accompanying music video showcases a day in the life of a boy and his dog. The video also features TikTok star Cale Saurage (or @calegoes).
Jetlag Girl is Christian Turner and Christian Thompson, who met in high school art class. They
began their musical journey together through the EDM scene and their shared interest in DJing. Soon after, they realized their desire to make original tracks and began producing their own music.
The two started DJing nightclubs around the Gulf Coast while producing and releasing remixes online. After a few years of shaping their unique sound – and playing a few larger festivals along the way – the two created Jetlag Girl.
