Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, and Phoebe Bridgers—three brilliant young singer-songwriters whose melodies and emotionally candid lyrics could turn an inanimate object into a blubbering wreck—have confirmed that they are now a supergroup. boygenius will release their self-titled, six-song debut EP on November 9 via Matador Records. They released released three of the songs this morning, and you can listen to them below. They're all beautifully spare, gently uplifting, and full of rich harmonies. Have fun sobbing into your morning coffee.
