Flagpole Premieres: Boy (feat. Members of Waitress, Nurture): ‘Art Donut’

Get in on the ground floor with Boy, a brand new Athens-based punk duo featuring guitarist/bassist/vocalist Dionnet Bhatti (Nurture) and drummer Scott Chalfant (Waitress).

The band’s first single, “Art Donut,” which Flagpole is happy to premiere today, is a lean, aggressive slice of noise-rock that should please fans of similar slash-and-burn groups like Unwound and Pissed Jeans.

Check out “Art Donut”:

Says Bhatti:

“Art Donut” was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jesse Mangum at The Glow March 8. The song is about the idea of masking your flaws (or values) with something stupid. Stop hiding behind those sprinkles, you idiot. Sprinkles are tasteless anyway.

Boy plays Flicker Theatre & Bar on Saturday, Mar. 14.
