Check out Brooklyn’s, NY’s BOYTOY and their latest album, “Night Leaf”.

Formed in 2014, BOYTOY combine luscious vocal harmonies and wavy bass lines for a sound that is equal parts surfer waves and dusty trails. On their sophomore full length, Night Leaf, released earlier this year on Stolen Body Records, the band exhibits polished and cohesive songwriting that is both fun and strong, while also betraying raw emotional edges.

The album’s opening track, It’s Alright, may chronicle the messiness that comes at the end of love, but it makes it feel so right. Mary Anne instantly grabs you with its plaintive appeals to the title character, while I Get Distant offers its perfect counterbalance with a chorus of “Dying alone. Make up my mind, I need you I don’t”. Echoing with late 80s/early 90s power pop influences, other highlights include Static Age, Pretty One, Juarez, and Cold Love.
