Austin trio Boy Friend have a new four-song EP out, “Secret City”, and it’s available on cassette via the wonderful Iowa City label, Night-People. The EP follows on the heels of the band’s video release for one of the tracks, “Labyrinth”. A track like “Lost in Film” reminds me a bit of Zola Jesus, with it’s passionate, soaring lead vocals and heavily dramatic instrumentation. “Bocca Della Verita” (“Mouth of Truth”) is much more casual, a summery song that drifts in and out of light synth and catchy keyboard-driven rhythms. The backing, choral oohs and ahhs are a wonderful accompaniment to the main vocals. The record is short, but delicately pretty. Follow Boy Friend on facebook. — David D. Robbins Jr.
