BOY – Little Numbers

Sometimes, I think I am on the bleeding edge of music and then I am quickly jerked back into reality.  Take this week’s pick.  The song was just posted on the Canadian iTunes site on December 4, 2012, only one song and it is the first released by this duo. The album which is yet to be released in Canada has already sold over 100,000 copies in Germany, while their irresistible debut single “Little Numbers” (song of the week) boasts over 6 million YouTube views and counting.  They are so new I cannot even find a web site.

BOY is comprised of Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass (neither of which are boys). Steiner sang in several bands in her native Switzerland before moving to Germany, where Glass grew up, playing the cello in classical orchestras as a child, and later working as a bass player for several pop bands. The duo met when they both participated in a prestigious music workshop in Hamburg.

This one will climb the charts fast and if you were not scanning the German charts like me then this one will be new to you as well.

Next week I will post some Christmas favourites in addition to the song of the week.

Sorry for the late post, Santa has been busy, busy, busy!
