“Devo-like… a good-ass time” – CLRVYNT

“make frill-free rock music that feels indebted to the last several decades of goofy punks-from Ian Svenonius to their tour mates Parquet Courts” – PITCHFORK

“Very much an energetic track.. the single is a three-minute-long, punky little number” – NOISEY

“Brookyn’s best new punks show their softer side” –FLOOD

B Boys hit us with their new single “Walking”, a song the band explains is “about trying to be tender and acknowledging that masculinity is a prison written after a whirlwind of emotions of being on tour.”  The single debuted over at FLOOD who’ve described it “bounces out like a version of ‘Sweet Jane’ reimagined for a punk-rock prom, but it quickly shifts into itself, the internal tension building more quickly than the group allows it to escape.”

– B BOYS MEET THE PRESS  –
 
A:  It all began with a dream, really. The album.
 
Q:  Oh, there’s an album?
A:  13 songs, recorded with microphones and such. A variety of instruments.
 
Q:  I’d call that an album.
A:  We call it Dada.
 
Q:  Like the art movement?
A:  Yeah sure, but more like the combination of syllables.
 
Q:  So, like a linguistic connection?
A:  Language, self-awareness, introspection, a fresh pair of chinos. It’s all connected; not everything has to make sense.
 
Q:  Fair enough, but it all seems to be stemming from somewhere. Where is this where?
A:  You won’t find it on some cartographer’s desk. It comes from within. Equal parts collective unconscious and personal experience.
 
Q:  That’s a lot deeper than you look.
A:  We got a different mind.
 
Q:  If 50 years from now the kids are still grooving to this Dada thing – success?
A:  50 years? Kids? We’d be happy if anyone was grooving to this 50 days from now.
 
Q:  What would you call that? Self-deprecation? An odd sense of humor?
A:  All we know is all we know, but 50 days of grooving sounds pretty good from where we sleep, especially on a pair of quality speakers.
 
Q:  Now you’re talking. OK, so I’m stuck on a deserted island with this Dada LP. What else should I bring?
A:  A tin of mints and some unconventional serenity.
 
Q:  Do you have anything specific you’d like to express to get the fans going?
 
At this point in the conversation, the B Boys looked at one another, stood up, and walked away without saying a word. Before reaching the door, they flipped a switch on the wall and every single fan in the place turned on. They looked back over their shoulder and smiled.
 
One thing’s for certain: I wish I could be on a deserted island with them right now with a salty breeze flowing through my hair.
