Spill Tab w/ Boyish
At just eight months old, spill tab moved from Bangkok to the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. Her Algerian father worked as a composer and played jazz saxophone and flute, whilst her mum hailed from South Korea and played piano and harp. She recalls “sitting underneath my mother’s piano while she just ripped and performed these beautiful songs.” She participated in Show Choir at Burbank High and listened to everything from Paramore, Young The Giant, and All Time Low to Bon Iver, Charlotte Day Wilson, and Mac Ayers. In between attending French school, music remained abundant. Following time living in Bangkok and Paris, she enrolled at New York University for college, holding down A&R internships. After a stint touring with Gus Dapperton as merchandise manager, spill tab moved back to LA to focus on crafting her own music. The result is a sound that diffuses her expansive sense of place, crafting anthems designed to punch and pacify all at once, and marking spill tab as a multifaceted and exciting addition to the New-Gen music force.
Boyish was formed by India Shore and Claire Altendahl in 2016. They met at Berklee College of Music when India needed a guitarist for an audition tape and Claire volunteered. Their musical compatibility quickly became apparent and they started collaborating soon after under the name “The Blue.” The duo went on to write and produce their debut project Carnation in 2018, which The New Yorker described as “looking uncertainty straight in the eye in songs that are confident in their musicality even when tackling themes of angst and doubt.” Carnation was nominated for Alt-Country Album of the Year at the Independent Music Awards.
After graduating college in 2019 and feeling the need to start over they changed their name to Boyish. They released their sophomore album Garden Spider on Valentines Day of 2020, which according to Atwood Magazine is “an immersive ten-track indulgence of introspection and inner angst channeled through a colorful, raw indie rock lens,” or as Claire calls it, a declaration of “Big Gay Sadness.” The album has amassed over 4 million streams and the title track “FUCK YOU HEATHER” was featured on editorial Spotify playlists such as “Fresh Finds Best of 2020” and “Undercurrents.”
Boyish released their most recent EP We’re all gonna die, but here’s my contribution on May 28th of 2021. The project has been streamed over 2 million times and received praise from publications like Nylon, NPR, Ones To Watch, Them., The GLAAD Wrap, and Lyrical Lemonade. They were also a recipient of the LGBTQ+ Emerging Artist Award presented by the Music Forward Foundation and were the first band to join the Bandsintown Big Break Class of 2021. Boyish closed out the 2021 by playing a myriad of shows, opening for artists like Spill Tab, Ella Jane, and Gully Boys across the country. They also released the lead single from their upcoming EP, “Smithereens” on December 3rd, 2021. The track received placements on Spotify editorial playlists like New Music Friday, Lorem, All New Indie and was featured in Billboard, Paper, and Office Magazine. Looking ahead to 2022, Boyish is gearing up to open for Remo Drive on a 17-date tour run and is then heading to South by Southwest to play an official showcase in March.
