boygenius, the band of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus have released their self-titled EP debut two weeks early today. Fans can stream the EP now on all digital services, while the physical version will be available on the official release date of November 9.
boygenius will also make their late-night television debut on November 5, playing ‘Me & My Dog’ on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
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.
