Formed of three of modern indie rock's most in-demand artists, supergroup Boygenius is heading out on a summer tour this year in support of their March 2023 debut album, The Record. Featuring Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Darcus, what began as a pipedream between three friends ended up a reality, with the group releasing their first EP, the self-titled Boygenius in 2018. The rest, as they say, is history!
In response to their time in the music industry often being reduced to their gender, Boygenius is an antidote to media expectations and the trope of the tortured male artist, as described by Darcus: "Boys and men...who've been told that they are geniuses since they could hear, basically," ...If one person was having a thought'I don't know if this is good, it's probably terrible'it was like, 'No! Be the boy genius! Your every thought is worthwhile, just spit it out"
