Boygenius brought songs from their long-awaited debut album, The Record, to Studio 8H.
Fresh off a whopping six Grammy nominations, the supergroup — helmed by Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker — gave rocking performances of “Not Strong Enough” and “Satanist” during its Saturday Night Live debut on Nov. 11.
With an introduction from second-time host Timothée Chalamet, Boygenius opened with “Not Strong Enough,” which topped Billboard‘s Adult Alternative Airplay in June. For the performance, the band donned black and white suits in a nod to The Beatles and their Rolling Stone magazine cover in tribute of Nirvana. The group returned in the same slick outfits for a moody delivery of their track “Satanist.”
Boygenius took the stage just weeks after the release of their new four-track EP, The Rest. Bridgers previously served as musical guest for her solo work, in April 2021, and memorably destroyed her guitar on stage in Studio 8H.
On Friday (Nov. 10), the three-piece discovered they were nominated for a six awards at the 2024 Grammy Awards, including nods for both album and record of the year for The Record and “Not Strong Enough,” respectively.
“It feels like I’m in a simultaneous come-up and come-down from a high,” Dacus told Billboard after the nominations were announced.
