BOYTOY join the PaperCup fam!
Brooklyn-based independent record label PaperCup Music has announced the signing of BOYTOY to their burgeoning roster, joining The Teen Age, Tennis System, Weekender, BLUFFING, Raccoon Fighter and Little Racer. The Brooklyn/Boston trio of Saara Untracht-Oakner (vocals/guitar), Glenn Van Dyke (guitar) and Matthew Gregory aka Matty Beans (drums) will release their debut EP in late Spring, recorded with Chris Mclaughlin at his 1867 studio in Chelsea, MA.
Untracht-Oakner and Van Dyke formed BOYTOY after the demise of their respective former bands (You Can Be A Wesley & Beast Make Bomb), after a 2am jam session was deemed successful. Dylan Ramsey joined on drums and is featured on the band’s 2013 singles and their upcoming EP. Ramsey has since jettisoned back home to Washington State and been replaced by Beans, an old friend, who stepped in and fit like a glove.
BOYTOY are headlining The Gutter tonight in Brooklyn and will perform February 21 at Shea Stadium. Listen to the single, “Visits”, released this past September via Bandcamp here, which MTVU called “an oh-so-short but oh-so-sweet-affair that leaves us wanting more.”
Early praise for BOYTOY:
“the best brand-new band in the world” - Allston Pudding
"California surf pop corrupted by a Brooklyn fuck-off attitude." - PretextSocialClub
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2014 IS GOING TO BE RADICAL. STAY TUNED FOR SOME RELEASE NEWS COMING SOON!
