Brooklyn-based alternative queer duo Boyish shares their new single “Congratulations” along with the announcement of their forthcoming EP My Friend Mica out May 6th.
The song is accompanied by a dual-sided music video directed by Chase Denton and shot in various locations throughout New York City. Written and produced by Boyish, the track was mixed by Brandon Shoop (ella jane, Allison Ponthier) and mastered by John Greenham (Billie Eilish, girl in red, Gracie Abrams).
The band shares this of their new single and music video:
“‘Congratulations’ is about falling for someone who you are close to. It’s the moment when you cross the line between friends and something more and the fear that once you cross that line there’s no going back. It’s written from the present day after things have fallen apart but reflects back to the moment when you become more than just friends.”
“The music video was directed by Chase Denton and produced by Working Holiday. We shot it in New York City across a couple of our favorite locations—Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Rockaway Beach, outside on someone’s stoop. Working House brought us the idea to do a micro-narrative and film the exact same shot of each of us but then flip it in post production to make this great inverted effect.”
