B Boys (Andrew Kerr, Brendon Avalos, Britton Walker) share the facetious video for “I Want”. The riotous clip directed by Jarod Taber captures moments of frustration, indifference and concern all whilst staying true to the track’s playfulness with touches of tongue-in-cheek wit throughout.
“I Want” is the first release from their forthcoming Dudu which will have a special edition release by DINKED limited to just 300, hand numbered copies. This comes on gold vinyl with an exclusive obi strip designed by the band.
DINKED was founded in 2018 by Drift, Piccadilly, Resident and Transmission. Four independent retailers coming together to form a new collective of like-minded shops.
B Boys have released two albums on Captured Tracks—2016’s No Worry No Mind EP and 2017’s debut full-length Dada—B Boys explore solitude and self-reflection through sharp, high-energy shouts and melodic mediations. Now, the sprightly sarcasm and acerbic commentary continues on the band’s new LP, Dudu. Recorded by Gabe Wax (Deerhunter, Ought, Crumb) at Outliner Inn and mixed by Andy Chugg (Pill, Pop. 1280, Bambara) to be released on July 26, 2019.
B Boys have toured the U.S. and Europe extensively, supporting acts such as Parquet Courts, Merchandise, Shame, Sunflower Bean, and Thee Oh Sees.
Influenced by The Clash, Wire, and Talking Heads, Dudu finds B Boys picking up where they left off, pondering quotidien grievances while examining the bigger picture. On tracks like “Cognitive Dissonance” and “Automation,” subtle tensions meet agonizing pressure that softly build, then explode. “I Want,” featuring Pill’s Veronica Torres, is a bright, feel-good critique of capitalism and greed.
