Featuring a sleek and sophisticated indie-pop sound seemingly custom-made for cosmopolitan coffeehouses, Germany-based female duo BOY have slowly but surely charmed fans around the world with their delightful debut album, Mutual Friends. Originally released in Europe way back in September 2011, the album went on to achieve gold status and sell more than 100,000 copies. Local listeners of 89.3 the Current undoubtedly first encountered the band via the fabulously Feist-like single "Little Numbers." With Mutual Friends having finally hit stateside just last month, the pairing of Swiss vocalist Valeska Steiner and German mult-instrumentalist Sonja Glass appears to possess just the right mixture of polish and grit to click with indie audiences and successfully court the mainstream simultaneously. With the Ericksons.
