The track is their third single of the year and is an encouraging and personal love letter to the first transmasculine person they ever met and fell in love with.
The imminently danceable pop track showcases Cunning’s most essential musical qualities – honest, authentic songwriting and vocals that soar in a clarion call to love ourselves.
Unzip your skin and let me in
We’re the last ones, the last ones, the last ones here
Don’t be afraid I know a place
For the last ones, the last ones, the last ones here
“This song is a love letter to to the queer community and anyone who has had to look beyond their back yard to find their community,” reads Cunning’s note on the YouTube page. “It’s a spotlight on the trans masc angels that are some of my true heroes, changing what it means to ‘be a man’ for the better.”
Cunning shares via press release, “Since writing ‘Boys’ three years ago, I have come out as non-binary (transmasculine-leaning) and I use they/them pronouns. Unknowingly, I wrote the song as a letter of acceptance to myself, and I hope it applies to our community at large.”
“I want this song in the hands of every young queer person, in fact every person who has not yet found the place where they belong. It’s for anyone who has had to look outside of their own back yard to find a place where they are seen for who they truly are.”
