New York City band, BOYTOY has premiered their new video for the single “Wild One” today. The clip arrives in advance of their first ever UK/European tour. Directed by Nick Zegel, the video is 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 on PaperCup Music.
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.
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.
