Boyfriend Genes -“Best Friend”


The shimmering, twinkling “Best Friend” is a delight from Brooklyn duo Boyfriend Genes. Boyfriend Genes is comprised of brothers Thomas and Travis Shaver, who honed their multi-instrumental abilities growing up with the aid of their father’s music store. Their live show, established this year, provides considerably immersion with custom visuals and lighting. “Best Friend” itself is a great showing of the project’s melodic smarts, projecting a melodic vein of jangly psych-pop. Regarding the track, the band writes: “We wanted to explore what it means to have your identity subconsciously shaped overtime by social interactions.” Released today, “Best Friend” also feels like a perfect fit for easing into the weekend, opening with the lyrics “everybody’s waiting for the weekend.”

“Best Friend” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
