Their band might be called Boy, but these two ladies can rock.

You may know the German-Swiss duo of Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass from their Mutual Friends LP released earlier this year, but if you don't, we have some pretty good reasons your should tune in to the group's sweet, sunny songs.

1. NEW MUSIC: Coming September 10 is an acoustic EP featuring select songs from their last album and some special extras. If you thought their original tracks were dreamy, just wait until you hear the calm breathiness of their latest offerings. 

2. A NEW TOUR: The duo is packing up and taking their songs around the United States this fall, starting on October 1 in Atlanta, GA and ending on October 27 in San Diego, CA. Check out their full list of tour dates here while you brainstorm matching outfits for you and your bestie to wear to the show. You are your own favorite girl group!

3. THE BEST COVER: We're eternally grateful to the girls in Boy for reminding us that it's been way too long since we watched The Virgin Suicides with their cover of Air's "Playground Love." You can listen to that track below to get in a white sundress mood and commence an afternoon of hazy, Sofia Coppola-inspired daydreaming.

Your ears deserve a little fun so listen up!
