It may be winter in Canada but things are just about to burst into spring with the new album by Boy, our newest girl crush duo from Germany and Switzerland. Boy is Valeska Steiner and bassist Sonja Glass and they founded the group in 2007 after they met at a music clinic in 2005. They sound a lot like our home girl Feist, but their sound is a little more European in sensibility and a little less delicate and fragile but all the while still plinky and fun. If you ever need an album to accompany you through a road trip in the country side, this record should definitely make your playlist.
Best Tracks: Little Numbers, Waltz For Pony
Listen to Boy’s album Mutual Friends here and other great albums in our First Spins section by artists like The View here. And get to know Boy more and watch this cute video of them speaking about the process of coming together and making Mutual Friends.Tweet
