Coachella Diaries: Girlyboi

by Sid Feddema

GirlyBoi is more than just another folk-pop duo. Originally from Chicago, Carly Russ and Joseph Matick mesmerize their listeners with dark and mystical harmonies coupled with raw and self-aware lyrics that sound like songs from somewhere outside of the canonical roster of American music making cities. This is reflective of the time the two spent in Paris, where they sought to escape the pervasive influence of America and its pop culture and which resulted in the album "Good Looks" released in 2016. The couple currently reside in New York City where they continue to make music touching on their relationship and real-life experiences, and we have it on good authority that new tunes from the power-couple will be coming soon.

We gave Girlyboi the keys to the Flaunt Instagram for their weekend in Coachella so that they could show us what it looks like from their enviably cool perspective. Scope the results in the gallery. Hopefully this will tide you over until you can bump their new music.
