BOYO is the psych-y fuzz-pop brainchild of 20 year-old Robert Tilden, former singer/songwriter in L.A. cult garage-band Bobby T. and the Slackers. BOYO was born out of the gradual dissolution of “Bobby T. and the Slackers,” a project that Tilden had started at age 16. “Bobby T.” had seen local success after playing raucous sets throughout LA’s D.I.Y. and warehouse circuit with a live lineup featuring Cleo Tucker (of Girlpool). Tilden then released a homemade demo-tape in late 2012, getting the project opening slots for L.A. mainstays (Cherry Glazerr, Surf Curse, The Frights, Girlpool, to name a few) and touring alternative/indie acts (La Femme, the DMAs).

BOYO's debut LP 'control' was released in August of 2016 and was recorded almost completely solitarily by Robert Tilden in the dark basement of his parents house over the course of a year. Following the debut LP, BOYO gained some notoriety in Los Angeles performing alongside such acts as Homeshake, Slow Hollows, and Jerry Paper as well as joining Reno, NV based two piece Surf Curse. Tilden released a standalone single "Good as Gone," this past January and was listed as one of L.A. Weekly's artists to watch for 2017.
