Boygenius has returned for a new EP
By Ashlynn Miles
A new EP from the supergroup Boygenius, including Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, and Lucy Dacus, was just released. The tracks on the EP are "True Blue", "Emily I'm Sorry", and "$20". Each of these songs is incredibly personal and serves as a reflection of the respective performers. More than four years have passed since the indie supergroup created sad-girl history with their self-titled EP. The band's first connection was sparked by a shared love of one another's music. Each band member contributed two songs for the first EP, which the other members expanded upon, and a band was then formed.
The EP's opening track, "$20," is contributed by Julien Baker. This was by far the edgiest tune, courageous and aggressive. There are relatively few lyrics, but very strong harmonization. The guitar riffs in this song's instrumentals, in particular, were extremely emotive, powerful, and fast paced.
The second song on the EP, "Emily I'm Sorry," is unmistakably a reflection of Phoebe Bridgers. The song's strong topic of past mistakes is there. The harmonies in this one are ethereal. You can tell there was a lot of effort put into the heartfelt lyrics. The distortion at the end supports the mood of this song.
The EP's final and longest song, "True Blue," is a narrative of Lucy Dacus. This song has a calming effect. It has excellent rhythms and is quite catchy. It has a really engaging backstory as well. It's about a loyal loved one who knows you better than you know yourself.. This song is strong and thought-provoking. I truly love the energy and feeling in this song.
Overall, I really enjoyed listening to this EP and I hope they keep releasing. Their songs were really bold, incredibly potent, and quite emotional.If you are a fan of Phoebe Bridgers solo music, then you may like this group. I adore these women’s sound and hope they continue their journey.
