Austin, TX experimental prog-psych quartet BOYFRNDZ will return with their 3rd full-length album, Impulse, on May 27th via Brutal Panda Records. In anticipation, the band is streaming their haunting new song “Hiatus” at Stereogum.com. Album pre-orders are available now at brutalpandarecords.com and bandcamp.
BOYFRNDZ has exploded onto Austin’s burgeoning indie scene over the last several years with a series of EPs, singles, live recordings and two full-length albums, All Day Pass and Breeder. The band also toured relentlessly, performing with acts like PALMS, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, glassjaw and Future Death among others, and at number of festivals including SXSW, Fun Fun Fun and Treefort, all while garnering critical acclaim from Stereogum.com, Noisey.com, Outburn, PrefixMag.com, Ghettoblaster, Exclaim! And more.
Now the band returns with their most mature and expansive material to date. Recorded at Uniform Studios with producer Jeff Zeigler (War On Drugs, Kurt Vile, Nothing), Impulse is a cerebral and emotive sonic journey. Complete with celestial melodies, propulsive rhythms and the soaring, ethereal falsetto of vocalist/guitarist Scott Martin, BOYFRNDZ have created a dark, cerebral work of chilling atmosphere and timeless soulful majesty.
“We’re always trying to push ourselves into new territories, to make new stylistic choices. It’s a really heady, layered album for us. The songs were driven more by capturing a mood and atmosphere than anything else. It was a really fun place for us to experiment, sonically.” – Scott Martin (vocals/guitars)
