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.
â€śWhen 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€ť Baker explains. â€śLucy 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€ť
Limited Edition Tri-Color vinyl is exclusive to the Matador Records webstore.
