While boygenius members Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers have all graced NPR’s Tiny Desk in years past, the three finally performed together at the venerable institution as their newly-formed supergroup. The indie-rock darlings stopped by the cozy confines of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen’s desk to perform a few songs from their debut EP, and the results are nothing short of adorable.
Dressed in eclectic black jackets and pants adorned with eccentric buttons and pins, boygenius cooed their way through three tracks – “Souvenir”, “Me & My Dog”, and “Ketchum, ID” – all of them thoughtful, country-tinged odes to loneliness and small-town intimacy. In between songs, Dacus and Bridgers adorably stumble their way through corny dad jokes, and it’s just a delight.
With vocal performances as delicate as Baker’s work on the mandolin and piano, it’s a great, relaxing set to ease you into the weekend.
