Hunx and His Punx mastermind Seth Bogart landed on our gayest songs of 2010 list with his cry-in-the-dark club anthem “Can A Man Hear Me?” (If there’s a ‘dingo ate my baby joke’ in there somewhere, I can’t think of one.) This year he’s prepping his debut album Too Young To Be In Love with an new all-girl backing band dubbed the “Punkettes”. The first song off the album “Lovers Lane” rides the girl group revival vibe, complete with spoken word lyrics and a nod to the “Be My Baby” drum intro. Check it out below.

Too Young To Be In Love is out March 29 on Hardly Art. North American tour dates after the jump.

    LOVE THIS! Its so romantic i have FULL BODY FEELINGS! I’m so lonely all of a sudden….

    Did they sample What’s A Girl To Do by Bat for Lashes…or steal it?

    Aly, you do realise that whats a girl to do sampled the song ‘Be my Baby’ from the 1960’s right?
    Both that song and this song seems to be pretty much an ode to girl gang vocals from that era, this one has an especially Shangri-Las feel to it.
    But yes, technically both Hunx and his Punx and Bat for Lashes have ‘stolen’ a sample – but it’s more of an ode than a sample.
