BOYO began as the dusty bedroom project of Robert Tilden, who released six self-produced albums under the moniker. Gaining a loyal cult fanbase following multiple successful tours, coverage on online publications like ๐˜•๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜บ, and having an mini-hit with his song "Hit or Miss", Tilden became an indie-rock stalwart. BOYO's 2023 LP "Science Fiction" is the first full-band album under the moniker, with the help of guitarist Hudson Buckley and drummer Nick Smyrniotis. This is immediately apparent on opening track "NPC Divorce", a livelier and more intricate song than anything in BOYO's past catalog. Influenced by the indie-sleaze bands and late night adult swim programming of the early-aughts, "Science Fiction" solidifies BOYO as a modern pop band using guitars to their advantage, moving past the confines "bedroom pop".
