TOLEDO - title song off of debut EP "Hot Stuff" when that one person means the universe to you

The song Hot Stuff by Boston based indie band TOLEDO is the title track off their debut EP. It starts with what sounds like a door opening and falls way to cool somber and forlorn vocals. This song is drenched in hopeful youthful pain. That kind of lovesick pain that feels magnified during those crucial years in high school or thereabouts when that person means everything to you, literally means the universe to you and to them you may feel like just one city block (and not even in the best part of town. I love the injection of phone conversations with the one glimmer of hope at the end. 

Toledo centers around life long friends Dan Alvarez and Jordan Dunn.
