Ahead of the release of their new single ‘Egyptian Wrinkle’ on January 23rd and album of the same title on February 6th, Texan girl-duo and best buds BOY FRIEND have unveiled a free remix by Stockholm boy-duo The Whendays!
With a creative partnership that combines different stylistic preferences and attitude with a passion for fantasy, narratives and ethereal, lovesick lyrics, Christa Palazzolo and Sarah Brown’s song writing is led by strong lead vocal and guitar melodies. Their layered in delicate harmonies, 80’s style ambiance, and thick atmospheric backdrops bring to mind a Cocteau Twins’ sense of dreamy, gaseous devastation, whilst making a sound that is still uniquely their own.
The two have collaborated on several projects together in their 15 year friendship, but it wasn’t until the end of 2010 while going through the break-up from their last band Sleep ∞ Over that they regrouped to record their first EP as a duo.
It was a heavily charged “break-up” album disguised in hazy undertones and big choruses. The following spring they recorded their Lovedropper 7″, and by Autumn of 2011 recorded their first full-length, entitled Egyptian Wrinkle, in a friend’s house in north Austin surrounded by dogs, bongos, and plenty of warm Texan vibes.

Boy Friend will be announcing UK tour dates very soon and will, of course, be hitting SXSW hard.
