listen to a couple of insanely infectious tracks from BOYBOY

None of Your Love - Single

We don't know much about the elusive and mysterious new artist BOYBOY -- who is probably Los Angeles-via-New Zealand artist Sam McCarthy -- other than the fact that he has quietly dropped two of the most effervescent and infectious jams of the year, and that people are sleeping...
