FEAR :: BOY :: Pop Rock

Let’s get this out of the way: I’m not posting WE WERE HERE (the lead single and obvious emotional standout from BOY’s second album) because I’ve been listening to it for months and probably so have anyone who’s ever heard of this band. Instead I’m posting the second track, a rollicking, guitar-backed number that triumphantly announces “all my love against your fear”, tugging at the heartstrings just as it forces a league of tapping feet. I was slow on the uptake with the album as a whole, but after this, I’m sure to check out the rest of BOY’s work. They’re the Swiss/German duo of vocalist Valeska Steiner and bassist Sonja Glass. Check them out, they deserve your attention. Sounds like: a sweet and layered combination of Sara Bareilles and Daughter
