Boy Friend is best buds Christa Palazzolo and Sarah Brown. With a creative partnership that combines different stylistic preferences and attitude with a passion for dark fantasy, narratives and love-sick lyrics, their song-writing is led by strong lead vocal and guitar melodies layered in harmonies, ambiance, and thick atmospheric backdrops.
The two have collaborated on several projects together in their 15 year friendship, but it wasn’t until the end of 2010 while going through a rough break-up from their last band, Sleep Over, that they regrouped to record their first EP as a duo. It was a heavily charged “break-up” album disguised in hazy undertones and big choruses. The following spring they recorded their Lovedropper 7”, and by Summer of 2011 recorded their first full-length, entitled Egyptian Wrinkle, in a friend’s house in north Austin surrounded by dogs, bongos, and plenty of warm Texan vibes.
