boygenius, the band of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus today release the physical version of their debut self-titled EP, boygenius. It follows the surprise digital release 2 weeks ahead of it’s official release and their late-night television debut, playing ‘Me & My Dog’ on Late Night with Seth Meyers earlier this week. Watch below!
Baker, Bridgers, and Dacus formed boygenius through a series of tours and performances together, and chance encounters that led to friendships, the lyrically and musically arresting singer-songwriters and kindred spirits got to know each other on their own terms.
With gut-wrenchingly personal yet easily relatable verses and spare, lilting melodic arrangements, all three are leading a new rock vanguard that values unflinching self-awareness and unassailable songcraft.
In early June of 2018, they practiced and wrote for a day before holing up in Los Angeles’ storied Sound City studios. Each brought one finished song and one idea to boygenius, and though all six songs were fleshed out and finalised together, each reflects the sensibilities of its initial author.
