Fort Lean
Change Your Name

Maybe it’s because the leaves are turning and the temperature is consistently dropping. But man, oh man, Change Your Name is bringing us back to those summer days on the beach. These CMJ veterans are back with another self-released EP.

“Do You Remember” finds us sitting at a drive-in movie, arm in arm with our main squeeze, sipping cokes, and pretending that one tear didn’t just slide down our cheeks. The next day, we’re driving down the coast (to the shopping center, obviously) with “The Mall” pumping out of our stereos. Fort Lean’s upbeat jams flow right into each other.

The party continues with “Envious.” Our friends are clearly jealous of the hip outfits we just got, but they agree to dance with us anyway. “All The Lights” is the slow dance we seek outside of the house party, but we get distracted when we look up at the shooting stars. Fort Lean knows how to show us a good time.
