Indie-rock godsends boygenius—Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus—made their TV debut on Monday’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, performing “Me & My Dog,” one of three singles from their self-titled debut EP.
Bridgers takes lead on “Me & My Dog,” and if her opening lines (“We had a great day / even though we forgot to eat / and you had a bad dream”) don’t send shivers down your spine, you may want to verify that you have a heartbeat. Seeing Bridgers, Baker and Dacus step to their mics to sing in unison—to say nothing of Bridgers’ towering sustained note at the song’s climax—is nearly sublime enough to make one forget what an anxiety-ridden day today is.
The trio surprise-released boygenius on digital platforms on Oct. 26, two weeks ahead of its official physical release this Friday, Nov. 9. Bridgers, Baker and Dacus embark on a North American tour together today, Nov. 6, beginning with two nights at Brooklyn Steel and ending with a Nov. 30 show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.
