Boygenius is an indie rock supergroup, formed in 2018, that consists of three exceptional singer-songwriters: Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus. These three talented musicians joined forces to create a powerful and evocative blend of haunting melodies, introspective lyrics, and rich harmonies. Each artist brings their own unique style and perspective to the collective, resulting in a sound that transcends their individual works.
The trio’s self-titled debut EP, released in October 2018, garnered critical acclaim and a loyal fan base, with tracks like “Bite the Hand,” “Me & My Dog,” and “Stay Down” showcasing their combined prowess. Following a nearly five-year gap, Boygenius released their first full-length album, The Record, in early 2023. The album was accompanied by a visual project directed by Kristen Stewart, titled “The Film,” which further amplified the group’s artistic vision. You can watch it below.
This unique film is a three-part visual odyssey, seamlessly connecting the music videos for “$20,” “Emily I’m Sorry,” and “True Blue.” Julien Baker takes center stage in the initial segment, seen bustling around a country home and tinkering with a dilapidated car. The second part, dedicated to “Emily I’m Sorry,” captures Phoebe Bridgers amidst a monster truck rally, with colossal trucks soaring over mounds of earth. In the concluding section, Lucy Dacus adorns her home’s walls with blue paint and furnishes it entirely in blue, with her bandmates lending a helping hand.
With their heartfelt storytelling and captivating sound, Boygenius has made an indelible mark on the indie rock scene, and they continue to captivate audiences around the globe with their engaging live performances and musical collaborations.
The announcement of The Record came in January, with its release following almost half a decade after their inaugural EP. Boygenius is set to embark on a tour after making a splash at Coachella, spearheading one branch of the Re:Set concert series. The band also disclosed additional North American tour dates just before The Record’s highly anticipated debut.
