Said project has now been revealed, and is called boygenius! The trio will release their debut EP on 9th November via Matador, and have shared three tracks from it.
“When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity,” Julien says of the project.
“Lucy and Phoebe are incredibly gifted performers, and I am a fan of their art outside of being their friends, but they are also both very wise, discerning and kind people whom I look up to in character as much as in talent.”
Lucy Dacus adds: “A long time ago, before I even met Phoebe, Julien mentioned that she had a pipe dream of starting a band with both of us.”
“It seemed obvious to record a 7-inch for tour, although many adult men will try to take credit for the idea,” Phoebe Bridgers continues. “When we got together, we had way more songs than we expected and worked so well together, that we decided to make a full EP.”
Listen to the new songs - ‘Stay Down’, ‘Me & My Dog’, and ‘Bite The Hand’ - below.
