In a small room, curtains drawn, in the ghetto side of Brooklyn, Eric Monse wakes up. He sits down in front of a computer screen and turns on mixing boards, synthesizers and drum machines. His black headphones clamp to his head as he listens to a file he downloads through the internet.
1800 miles away, in Denver, Colorado, Shane Etter is turning off his synthesizers for the evening. He has just finished composing the file Eric is listening to. The file contains a song: music, vocals, recordings, and midi information. Eric and Shane have already sent multiple variations of this file back and forth to each other in their collaboration, changing and crafting the song.
The file, you could say, is Boyfriendgirlfriend.
located simultaneously in new york and denver, boyfriendgirlfriend are set to release their debut album, 'name names'. not a single note of the album was recorded with eric and shane in the same room as each other. but as they begin their east coast tour, each stage will burn with sonic fury and visual intensity.
