Stream BOYTOY’s Cover of The Eyes’ ‘When the Night Falls’ for Free

Brooklyn trio BOYTOY have shared a free stream of their take on The Eyes’ ‘When the Night Falls’, taken from forthcoming split 7″ with Schade, out on Sacred Hood/PaperCup Music.

“I forgot where I first heard this song, but when I did I was totally entranced.  It was one of the sexiest songs I’d ever heard – so much feel and so much cool for such a simple song.  I loved how it could convey so much with so little.  I wanted to cover it for a while, but never actually tried.  Then one day this summer I was playing it in the car and proposed it to Glenn [van Dyke] and Chase [Noelle] and they were both super into it.  So Chase learned the drum part and Glenn came in with some tambourine and psychy noise guitar stuff. I borrowed Chase’s harmonica and we laid down our version on the song in a little studio that Glenn rents out in the Brooklyn Navy Yard,” Guitarist/vocalist Saara Untracht-Oakner said in a statement.

The band came together after Untracht-Oakner graduated from college in Boston and hooked up with guitarist/vocalist and Florida Glenn van Dyke. The pair bonded over a mutual love of surfing, skating and DIY pop-punk.

They released a self-titled EP in 2014 followed by their debut album Grackle in 2015 on PaperCup Music.
