Boy, oh boy! This two-gal band known as BOY, comprised of Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass, was first picked up by German record label Grönland Records, to help them realize their debut album Mutual Friends back in 2011. They quickly became a hot band with the release of a music video featuring their debut singe "Little Numbers" (performed live above) and they soon won the hearts of many Europeans.
Bringing lots of charisma to the stage, Valeska and Sonja delight us with this whimsical and playful melody in "Little Numbers". Reminiscent of Sarah Bareilles or Ingrid Michaelson, the lyrics are charming and simple, in a "less is more" kind of way.
Also featured on Mutual Friends is the track "Oh Boy" which sends a clear message of the classic notion that she's out of his league. And then there's "Drive Darling" which brings some emotional depth to the album, and could easily blend in with almost any She & Him Album.
Their North American release of Mutual Friends was released with Nettwerk Records just before SXSW, in February 2013. BOY just wrapped up their musical journey on the road, touring the US and Canada this last October.
