Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus Announce Boygenius EP + Share Singles

Critically acclaimed US songwriters Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus have combined their considerable talents for a new project titled boygenius, and have unveiled three fresh collaborative cuts from an upcoming self-titled EP due to drop in November. The supergroup emerged from the artists connecting creatively and personally with each other via the intersecting pathways of their own solo tours. Initially conceived as a one-off 7" single release, the synergetic project soon blossomed into a full scale collection. Baker shared a statement on the genesis of boygenius, read her words and stream 'Bite The Hand', 'Me & My Dog' and 'Stay Down' below...

"When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavours, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity... 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.

Everyone seemed both confident enough to present ideas and fight for their individual vision, but considerate and humble enough to make decisions which ultimately served the song... it was a process that required a balance of determination and forthrightness with graciousness and pliability, and I think that we all did a good job of enacting that.”

Boygenus' self-titled EP is out on Friday 9th November via Matador Records.
