For London singer Adam Welsh and Brooklyn producer Joshua Hoisington, a few thousand miles wasn’t about to get in the way of working together. The duo met in New York’s live theatre community just last year and, in light of obvious geographical obstacles, quickly became remote collaborators under the name BOII. And even though they’re trading recordings over email, Hoisington’s grasp on alt-pop, folk-tronica and deep house continues to provide the perfect foundation for Welsh’s mentally explorative lyrics and vocals, already heard on BOII’s first two singles from 2018.
Today BOII announces their debut EP for a Spring 2020 release alongside their sole track of the past year, and it’s one hell of a sentimental banger on a bittersweet beat: “Footwork”!
