Toronto, ON-based duo The Manic Boys And Girls Club have announced their self-titled EP due out July 13, 2023. Alongside the announcement, the band has shared the single and video “We’ll Be Fine”. The track “explores the process of forgiving oneself for past mistakes and wasted time and offers a much-needed sense of hope.”
Next month, the band will kick off a string of shows throughout the Spring and summer, beginning in Toronto, ON at The Baby G on April 21. On July 13, the band will hold an exclusive stripped down EP release show at The Bitter End in New York.
The duo consists of siblings Bela and Fernando Ferreira, who created the project out of a “desire to escape from the mundane”, citing their strict Catholic upbringing and being sent to Portugal to live with their grandmother, a former nun.
Over five tracks, the duo blend Alternative Rock and Indie Pop in a collection Produced by Gavin Brown (Glorious Sons, Hoobastank, Metric, Billy Talent) and engineered by David Mohacsi.
Explaining how the song “We’ll Be Fine” came about, Fernando says:
We all live with the mistakes we’ve made. Maybe the tattoo you regret, the relationship you should have never been in, the words you should have said, what you should have not said, or maybe the time we’ve wasted.
‘We’ll Be Fine’ is about letting go of all of those things. I really believe that even when nothing around us makes sense, and as much of a mess as life may seem at times, for whatever reason, we are exactly where we are meant to be. There is a plan for us all.
