BOYTOY premiere video for ‘Wild One’


BOYTOY has premiered a video for the single Wild One to coincide with their first ever UK/European tour, which just kicked off this week in Italy (full dates below). The video clip was directed by Nick Zegel, and it’s a prequel to the August video for Your Girl – chance encounters in the wilds of Las Vegas, that lead to a psychedelic romp in desert. Both songs are featured on the Brooklyn duo’s debut full-length album, ‘Grackle,’ which arrived last fall via PaperCup Music. Watch Wild One via YouTube below.

BOYTOY formed when Saara Utracht-Oakner graduated from college in Boston and headed back home to New York, hooking up with fellow guitarist/vocalist, and Florida-native, Glenn Van Dyke. Their mutual interest in surfing, skating and DIY punk/pop rock led them to click instantly.  Their self-titled debut EP dropped in 2014, garnering praise from outlets such as Noisey, Stereogum, SPIN, The Village Voice, Time Out New York. The duo headed into the studio in Philadelphia in the spring of 2015 with producer Al Creedon (Eternal Summers/Bleeding Rainbow) to record, resulting in 11 tracks of no nonsense, rock n’ roll bangers, and melodic hooks galore.

Since releasing ‘Grackle’ last October BOYTOY have toured the U.S. relentlessly, spending this past winter camped out in Southern California, before joining the Lollipop Records/Onward Indian Caravan Tour out to SXSW, making their way back to New York City via their frequented haunts in the Southeast. BOYTOY’s European experience is not to be be missed.
