RIYL: Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus
Label: Matador Records
I’ll be short and sweet. Boygenius isÂ Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus whom formed a group after touring together. There is a limited edition Tri-Colored version of their first EP that has sold out on the US site, but is available at the EUÂ site (with a little heftier shipping cost).
A little copy/paste blurb below:
Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus formed Boygenius after booking a tour together, but the trio had subconsciously been in the works for longer than that. Through a series of tours and performances together, and chance encounters that led to friendships â including Bridgersâ and Dacusâ first in-person meeting backstage at a Philadelphia festival, greenroom hangouts that felt instantly comfortable and compatible, a couple of long email chains and even a secret handshake between Baker and Dacus â the lyrically and musically arresting singer-songwriters and kindred spirits got to know each other on their own terms.
âWhen we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity,â Baker explains. âLucy and Phoebe are incredibly gifted performers, and I am fans of their art outside of being their friends, but they are also both very wise, discerning and kind people whom I look up to in character as much as in talent.â
Limited Edition Tri-Color vinyl is exclusive to the Matador Records webstore.
