New York, NY (April 2, 2018) – Brooklyn garage-psych quartet BOYTOY premiered a new single, “Static Age”, via CLASH – share via Soundcloud. The track is featured on their upcoming sophomore album, Night Leaf, due April 27 on PaperCup Music worldwide, except Stolen Body in the UK/Europe and Burger Records (cassette-only). In conjunction BOYTOY has announced a New York City album release show on April 27 at Secret Project Robot along with an European/UK tour in May, including The Great Escape (all dates below).
Pre-order Night Leaf via iTunes.
Saara Untracht-Oakner and Glenn Michael Van Dyke formed BOYTOY in 2013, brought together by surf and rock & roll. They released their self-titled debut EP in 2014, their debut album Grackle in 2015 and a slew of 7” singles, revamping the line up in 2016 to feature drummer Chase Noelle (ex-Thelma and The Sleaze) & bassist Lena Simon (La Luz).
Night Leaf was recorded with producer Kyle Mullarky‘s (Allah Las) at his Pump House Studio in Topanga Canyon, outside of Los Angeles. BOYTOY’s sound ebbs and flows between natural harmony and destruction—embodying the bright LA grooves of the 1960’s with heavy guitar riffs snatched from the Lower East Side of the 1970’s. Night Leaf is a summer-time strut down a New York City sidewalk as the sun slips behind the horizon where cement meets the shore and waves crash on pavement.
The album’s first single, “Mary Anne” [Spotify], arrived last month prior to a U.S. tour around SXSW, kicking off with a sold-out Brooklyn performance at Elsewhere’s Zone Room. Summer U.S. dates are in the works.
