When you hear the words "summer jam," you probably don't think of a song that's also really moody and angst-ridden. Somehow, Asher Monroe's "Lonely Island" -- which premiered exclusively on AsherMonroe.mtv.com today -- manages to be all of the above.
The breezy, island-tinged track sees the "Memory" singer feeling lost and isolated, unable to find a beautiful person who caught his eye: "Is it a sweet dream, or is it a nightmare/ I can't sleep without you right here/ Lost in the middle of nowhere/ I need you/ It's like I'm on a lonely island/ Waitin' for ya, waitin' for ya." Man, Craigslist missed connections are rough.
Grab an umbrella-sporting drink and a couple of tissues, and listen to "Lonely Island" below.
