boygenius Matador

Boygenius is the coming together of solo artists Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus

Though each songwriter provided the structure for two songs, in truth all three built them into their inished form.

Bridgers cites the example of the song Ketchum, Idaho, a track she had brought into the studio as “a nothing, a chord progression, a melody, half a verse” but that, in fact, became a “magical experience”.

The song had begun as Bridgers’ attempt to capture the challenges and strangeness of life as a touring musician. “Trying to talk to your partner back home and being in a van and having no privacy, being really busy and having spaces between but it’s not down time, you can’t go anywhere,” she explains. “It’s this weird, anxious, lethargic feeling. And you can’t complain about it because you wouldn’t want to do anything else.”
