Amoeba Review

11/24/2013

BOY’s enormously appealing debut record is a marvel of simplicity, composed of little else than the vocals and acoustic guitars of its members, Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass. The German/Swiss duo write small narratives about everyday life, staring out windows and inventing stories, detailing the intersect between daydream and mundane reality. “You’re in my head, only in my head” they sing on the spare “Railway,” while “Drive Darling” combines the fine details of riding in the passenger seat and the pensive thoughts that take place in idle times. Mutual Friends is largely composed of these quiet, iPhone-free moments, but when BOY turns it up, they are just as ingratiating. “Oh Boy” gives Tegan & Sara a run for the acoustic pop crown with its jaunty rhythm. Single “Little Numbers” is the kind of song Apple wishes it could write on its own to sell products, stringing together handclaps, spirited vocals and adorable lyrics (“seven little numbers baby, I know yours by heart”) that don’t trigger the gag reflex, given their tasteful treatment. Any fan of Feist, She & Him and Of Monsters & Men should be able to find kinship in BOY’s delightful debut, which promises much from this overseas duo. Read More
