boygenius stopped by the SiriusXM studio to deliver an ethereal acoustic session. The supergroup played a cover of Dan Reeder’s 2020 single, “Stay Down, Man” as well as acoustic renditions of “Cool About It” and “Not Strong Enough” off their debut studio album, the record.

Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus did what they do best: stripping down songs to their bare bones to highlight the most emotion-evoking harmonies and melodies. While Reeder’s “Stay Down, Man” is piano-heavy, the boygenius version is led by Bridgers on acoustic guitar. Bridgers also takes the first verse, with Dacus on the second and Baker dominates the backing vocals.

For “Cool About It,” Baker picks up the banjo to compliment Bridgers acoustic plucking. Rock ballad “Not Strong Enough” has begged for an acoustic version ever since the record dropped in March. Dacus picks up her guitar (and Baker swaps her banjo for a guitar as well) and the three deliver an otherworldly execution of the song.

The trio is currently headlining the “Re:SET” concert series along with LCD Soundsystem and Steve Lacy, which is making stops in a multitude of major US cities. Prior to boygenius taking the stage, attendees are privy to performances by Bartees Strange, Dijon and Clairo. On the New York leg of the festival, boygenius played a new song “Boyfriend” – hopefully a sign of new music (or new covers) to come.
