The press release reckons this is already “a classic”. Wherever the debut single release from Florida’s Black Kids ends up in rock’s dusty pantheon, two things are for certain: one, this hype is ridiculous; two, ‘I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend’ is a very decent crack at a song.
Riding in on what should be a long familiar Cure-reffing riff, ‘I’m Not Gonna Teach…’ continues through a flurry of synths and bleeding heart yelps, protagonist Reggie Youngblood turning down a dance in a capricious huff.
The song’s message? What’s the point in dancing if it doesn’t lead to sex. Dubious? Yes, I hear the DrownedinSound readership say; what’s the point in dancing at all if we can take the sex anyway.
