You don’t have to spend long in the company of Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass to work out the secret behind the success of Swiss/German duo BOY’s debut album. Mutual Friends is a magical collection of songs – suffused with equal parts joy and melancholy – that reflects the two women’s personalities flawlessly. Mutual Friends is an album of simple, heartfelt pop decorated with art school elegance and occasional folky flourishes. Their infectiously catchy single, "Little Numbers," has collected more than 7 million views on YouTube.
