Watch: boygenius Unveils Animated Music Video for ‘Cool About It’ Ahead of Fall Tour

Today the rock supergroup trio known as boygenius, consisting of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus, dropped an animated music video for their hit single “Cool About It.” This track is a lead single from their critically acclaimed album, the record, which made its debut on March 31 earlier this year and the video marks the first animated offering from the band.

Directed by Lauren Tsai, the animated music video for “Cool About It” showcases stunning visuals and expertly crafted animation; viewers are taken on an emotive and visually striking story that showcases the relationship between a dog and a dog toy, which complements the melancholic and piercing nature of the song.

Tsai shared her thoughts on the project, saying, “‘Cool About It’ is a beautifully melancholic and piercing song that puts words to feelings often left unexplained. It is an absolute dream to collaborate with the genius that is boygenius. I made animated videos on YouTube when I was 11, and I cannot imagine something I’d lose my mind over more if I could go back in time and tell myself. I will always be grateful to the band for the many ways in which their work has affected my life.”

As the release of the “Cool About It” music video captivates audiences and leaves begin to change, boygenius are gearing up for an exciting fall tour. The tour kicks off on Sept. 25 with two back-to-back nights in Boston at the MGM Music Hall at Fenway. From there, the trio will make stops in New Haven, Conn., at the Westville Music Bowl and in Philadelphia at the TD Pavilion at The Mann. The tour will conclude with the trio’s Madison Square Garden debut on Oct. 2.

Furthermore, boygenius have something special in store for Halloween as they host a unique event at the Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 31.
