There’s nothing quite as electric as midnight passions: Those intimate moments, after you’ve gone out, where you’re finally one-on-one with your crush and ready to spend the night together. There’s an immediacy to this transition, but more than anything, there’s the pull of attraction – that hunger and expectation for the connection lingering right around the corner. Fast-rising Los Angeles duo Mannequin Online capture the intensity of late-night intimacy in their third single “I Do,” a rush of heartfelt indie pop passion.

I Do – Mannequin Online

Yeah, I do
You ask me if I wanna
get out of here, I say I do

I don’t need another excuse
to be alone with you

Don’t you wanna know all the
trouble we could get into?

I do
I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “I Do,” the cheekily-titled third single from Los Angeles duo Mannequin Online. The indie pop project of Zach DeGaetano and Bridget Boltz, Mannequin Online debuted in mid-2019 with the feverish funky song “So Cool,” followed by a slew of remixes and ultimately October’s bouncing sophomore single “I Remember.”

Working with excitingly bright, lush sonic tapestries full of harmonic warmth and fervent energy, Mannequin Online are definitely an artist to keep our eyes on in the coming months – a fact solidified today through the clever lyrics and emotional outpouring present on “I Do.”

“We wrote “I Do” to encompass the late-night rush of escaping a crowded bar or party to be alone with someone you’re extremely interested in,” Mannequin Online tell Atwood Magazine. “It also doubles as an anthem for when you’re starving, waiting for takeout food, and can physically see the restaurant taking their time preparing your order. Either way, we hope listeners find “I Do” to be a soundtrack worthy addition to their late-night drives and/or questionable evenings on the town as we intended for it to be.”

Don’t be polite
Another drink and I just might
Be what you like
‘Cause I know that you’re my type
I can feel you looking,
there’s no need to complicate it

Silent treatment’s making me want you
Yeah, I do
You ask me if I wanna get out of here, I say I do
I don’t need another excuse to be alone with you
Don’t you wanna know all the trouble we could get into?
I do
I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

With a provocative RnB-brushed pop sound marrying Gallant with Grouplove, Foster the People with Emotional Oranges or dvsn, Mannequin Online prove themselves an instant earworm worthy of our attention. Their music recalls 2018’s Atwood artist-to-watch NoMBe, who took his sensual guitar licks and wrapped them around our hearts.

“I Do” is the exact right kind of sultry: A moodily urgent fever dream, it’s a hot n’ heavy invitation to bask in whoever, or whatever it is we’re trying to get busy with.

Best of all, “I Do” is straightforward and honest: It doesn’t play any games, make assumptions, or go above and beyond in any way. It’s an indulgence of the present, immersing listeners in that momentary electricity that makes our hair stand on edge for a few fleeting seconds each day.

So, do you want to get out of here?
