Swiss/German female duo BOY will return to North America for a small run of May dates, starting May 13th with a live taping at Boulder’s eTown Hall alongside City And Colour. These dates follow a hugely successful premiere North American tour last month in support of the band’s critically acclaimed debut album, Mutual Friends, featuring infectious single “Little Numbers.”

The ladies of BOY, Swiss-born Valeska Steiner and German-born Sonja Glass, charmed their way across North America last month, starting with a sold-out show at Joe’s Pub. In a live review, Jon Pareles of The New York Times wrote: "BOY writes and sings tuneful, friendly, forthright pop-folk songs about life and relationships...cradled by melodies with a comfortable lilt and by Ms. Steiner’s sweet, unfailingly precise lead vocals…Boy brings a pastry chef’s skill to its music; there’s structure behind the sweetness."

The band continued to sell out dates in Brooklyn, San Diego, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, DC, Chicago (two nights), Minneapolis (two nights), Toronto and Montreal, ending with a sold-out performance at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, their largest venue in the U.S. to date. They also survived their first trip to Austin for SXSW, where they were chosen by the likes of NPR Music, The Wall Street Journal, Esquire and Daily Candy as an artist to watch. They played multiple showcases including the KCRW Official Day Party (alongside Jake Bugg and Devendra Banhart), Bust Magazine Presents, Baeble Music's Indie Launch Pad and more.

Mutual Friends was released on February 29th and debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #13. It broke into the Billboard Top 200 in its second week at #179, bringing them up to #5 on Heatseekers. The album continues to remain on the Heatseekers Chart as infectious single "Little Numbers," which boasts more than 8 million views on YouTube, climbs the Triple A Top 30 Chart. BOY has made fans at influential radio stations across the country, appearing in-studio for KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic," KCMP's "The Current," WXPN's "World Cafe" and more. “Little Numbers” was also featured as iTunes’ Single of the Week in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and Starbucks’ Pick of the Week. Additionally, MTV2 added BOY and "Little Numbers" to "Artists To Watch."

BOY plans to return to North American in the fall. Stay tuned for more details.
