Exclaim! Class Of alum Jaguar Sun — the lush dream pop project of Toronto's Chris Minielly — has released a new single entitled "Boris," which arrives alongside a music video featuring a very floofy dog.

The track arrives today via Born Losers, following Jaguar Sun's sophomore full-length, 2022's All We've Ever Known, as well as an Audiotree Live session from earlier this year.

While any Jaguar Sun offering could technically be considered a creature feature, "Boris" really is about the eponymous canine cutie, who is likewise a staple on Minielly's Instagram.

With a warm flush of synths and soft, jangly guitar, the prismatic single is a wholesome ode to the musician's relationship with his pooch. If we can't cuddle with Boris ourselves, this is the next best thing.

Watch the "Boris" video below, where you'll also find the Jaguar Sun tour itinerary.
