boygenius Is Back With the rest. Check Out The BUST Review.

by Mollie Wells

boygenius’ unexpected EP the rest is a beautiful surprise in a year of beautiful surprises. Coming mere months after the record (and its subsequent tour) took over our collective consciousness, this new release from Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus feels like a deep breath: four intimate tracks that hover between heaven and earth, pausing to reflect before whatever comes next. It’s a quieter outing than much of the record, but the boys are at full power here, rocketing from the gentle crescendos of “Black Hole” and “Powers” to the grounded hum of “Afraid of Heights” and “Voyager.” Magnetic, vulnerable, and essential.
