They call themselves “the boys”, the trio released their self-titled debut EP in 2018 and now brought out the long awaited first Album called “the record”.

So the expectations for the debut album were high considering the amount of singer-songwriter power that comes together in this supergroup. The songs sometimes get carried by one of the artists while in other…
