Alt-pop artist Nicolas McCoppin is releasing a new NYC-inspired single "L.E.S. boy" on Friday, June 9th. This dance-worthy track is an upbeat interpretation of topics related to relationships, heartbreak, the LGBTQ+ community, self-discovery, mental health, and more. "L.E.S. boy" is the definition of a catchy comeback anthem dedicated to McCoppin's time spent living in the Manhattan's East Village. In an aching reminiscence, "L.E.S. boy" reflects McCoppin's transcendence into a new self-power that he hopes to convey to listeners through a more exploratory sonic landscape. A auditory sucker-punch to the gut, bright melodies are contrasted with industrial textures and beats amidst an ethereal aura that flows in and out creating a cinematic listening experience.

McCoppin's lyrics explore the fear associated with codependency, specifically highlighting how empty one can feel once that attachment breaks. Nicolas has grown to be more confident in himself, and has worked to include himself on the list of people he holds close to his heart. Complete with introspective lyrics and optimistic instrumentals, L.E.S. boy represents a painful yet rewarding rebirth of the soul.

"L.E.S. boy is the first chapter of my rediscovery. I had to find a version of myself that could survive betrayal by two of the closest people in my life. I was drowning in confusion and for a long time couldn’t put my feelings into words. Creating L.E.S. boy helped me to express and uncover the person I was becoming. This song is for everyone who has loved, lost, and felt every emotion in-between. I hope L.E.S. boy can provide listeners with the same sense of serenity and joy it brought me." - Nicolas McCoppin, Indie-Pop Artist

"L.E.S. boy" launches just in time for Pride month and is the perfect soundtrack to any and all Pride celebrations in NYC and beyond! Nicolas McCoppin is a member of the LGBTQ+ community himself and makes a conscious effort to support efforts as much as he can. Pride is McCoppin's favorite time of year, and he is thrilled that this release will be available for listeners to stream and dance to all month long.

With a mission to create space for himself in pop music, McCoppin offers a fresh perspective on the timeless genre. McCoppin has been described as “...a once-in-a-lifetime artist. He comes across as a storyteller, first and foremost, with an incredible gift for creating music unlike anything we’ve heard before," (Ascribe Magazine), "a rising figure in the LGBTQ community as the next major pop artist to watch,” (Instinct Magazine) and a “smooth pop hottie” (Queerty).

2021 was a standout year for McCoppin, making his mark on the music industry with the official US radio debut of lead single “Heaven”. “Heaven” entered Mediabase’s US Pop/Top 40 radio chart at #40 in June of 2021 continued to climb charts each week with rave reviews from station programmers across the US. McCoppin’s career quickly skyrocketed with a distribution deal with AWAL (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) that boosted his online fanbase and cultivated over 850,000 worldwide streams on his debut EP, ‘Loverboy’ the same year. ‘Loverboy’ was featured on a billboard in Times Square for its’ global release weekend and launched the LGBTQ artist to be named as an Instagram Official Pride Creator. This success led to a deluxe repackage of the EP, where McCoppin collaborated with Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry - “Teenage Dream”) to write the track “Dancing on the Moon”. The rising artist also boasts support from the fashion industry, with fashion icon Moschino Couture collaborating to dress and style the “Heaven” music video.

McCoppin’s considerable appeal as a pop artist is further solidified through the plethora of praise he has received from top industry influencers. McCoppin’s 2021 releases were highlighted within several high-profile publications including VEVO, Spotify, Grindr, Queerty, Medium, Instinct Magazine, and others, with NYS Music stating that McCoppin’s music is "an East Coast ‘Teenage Dream’”. The young pop artist translates his online industry success to packed shows at various venues in NYC including The Bowery Electric, Piano’s, Knitting Factory, Berlin Under A, and YouTube Space NYC. He has also performed on the west coast at The Hotel Cafe in LA. Nicolas recently signed an exclusive licensing distribution deal with Beatroot, LLC/Made In Memphis Entertainment in May 2023. His upcoming releases will be under Loverboy Recordings, LLC exclusively licensed to Beatroot, LLC!
