Boyish was formed by India Shore and Claire Altendahl in 2016 at Berklee College of Music.
The duo have accumulated 20 million streams across their catalogue and have received praise from various publications including Billboard, Paper, Office Magazine and Pigeons and Planes. The singles from their 2022 EP My Friend Mica landed spots on New Music Friday, All New Indie, and the focus track “Legs” crept up to a #1 spot on Lorem. Following the EP they released an acoustic version of their track “Smithereens” with indie powerhouse Rachel Chinouriri who they will be opening for on tour in the UK in May of 2023.
Boyish was the recipient of the 2021 LGBTQ+ Emerging Artist Award presented by the Music Forward Foundation as well as the the first band to be added to the Bandsintown Big Break Class of 2021. Additionally, the duo was featured on a 16-song 2022 Record Store Day x Vans compilation vinyl entitled Portraits of Her alongside Taylor Swift, Girl in Red, Julien Baker and more.
