boygenius’ ‘The Rest’ EP will also be available on limited edition yellow 10″ vinyl and CD – get your copies here.
‘The Rest’ comes after boygenius released their debut album ‘The Record’ in March. The album scored a glowing five-star review from NME‘s Erica Campbell, who wrote: “This debut is a gorgeous testament to what can happen when you allow yourself to fully be seen. Though each of the album’s 12 tracks could have fit nicely on one of their personal records, their work together takes on a brighter bolder existence, enabling them to light up individually and together at the same time.”
Campbeell continued: “Bridgers, Dacus and Baker did the tedious work of getting to know each other artistically and collaboratively and then poured what they found out into the world. Now, we as listeners, get to benefit.”
boygenius most recently released an animated music video for ‘Cool With It’ earlier this month. The Lauren Tsai-directed video features gothic-themes. Tsai said of the video: “‘Cool About It’ is a beautifully melancholic and piercing song that puts words to feelings often unexplained. It is an absolute dream to collaborate with the genius that is Boygenius.”
