Introducing... BOY [who are actually both girls]!
The Hamburg-based duo are set to release their charming debut album 'Mutual Friends' in New Zealand on September 21st, 2012 - featuring one of my favourite songs of late, 'Oh Boy'. [Click HERE to read our recent Boy interview].
FIVE REASONS WHY WE HEART BOY...
#1. Boy know how to put together a dainty cover of La Roux's single, 'Bulletproof'.
#2. VALESKA STEINER [the one that looks like Feist] can play the melodica! Check out 2:15 during the below live acoustic performance of 'Skin'... it's like a magic trick.
#3. I have absolutely no idea what they are saying when they speak in German, but they sure do sound pretty.
#4. SONJA GLASS [the one that looks like Carrie Brownstein] is pro at playing miniature pianos as evidenced in Boy's 'Little Numbers' music video.
#5. Phoenix’s touring drummer Thomas Hedlund plays drums on four-twelfths of the 'Mutual Friends' album, with one of those songs being the super catchy 'Waitress'... which makes a mention of cake in its lyrics.
