About a BOY
Today on BVD we shine a light on a not-so-well-known band that is pure love, love, love.
Some of you might have heard about it, some of you may not. As a matter of fact, they're pretty popular in Europe, and their first-ever USA tour launched on March 1, 2013 with a sold-out performance at Joe's Pub, New York City. Hooray for them!
They're called BOY, and they're a Swiss-German pop duo that's currently touring the Old Continent promoting their new pop-sterpiece. And don't worry if you're not convinced about them so far, it's not super cheesy bubblegum pop, it's more like a heart-felt, smooth pop-folk with cool doses of happy as I like to say.
After a two-year hiatus to focus on song-writing, the duo released their second studio album We Were Here and it made it to the US early 2016. Personally I haven't stopped playing the 9 songs that make up the record ever since.
Their songs are generally upbeat, with catchy rhythms that make you tap your toes or straight-up dance, storyline lyrics and a super #girlboss attitude. This album is no different; it takes you through some ups and downs, deep meanings and transport you to a musically crafty place.
After listening to the entire album way too many times, I've nominated the following songs as my top 3:
