Initially BOYS released a handful of small demos throughout 2015, receiving a great response from the online community, racking up over 15,000 plays in a short space of time. They then began performing live on the London music scene playing at some key venues such as The Old Blue Last, Birthdays & Moth Club
BOYS released their debut EP "American Dream" in summer 2016. Recorded and produced by Max Bloom of Yuck and previously Cajun Dance Party. The collaboration has taken the initial demos to a new level, perfectly blending Max’ unique lo-fi production style with the innovative song-writing of the band.
