Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
Springfield, Missouri’s favorite foursome boasts a mouthful of a moniker. Unlike most buzz bands of the last decade, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin crafts charming pop music that’s worth its lengthy name. The band stumbled upon fame in 2005 with its debut, Broom, which was recorded in the house of lead guitarist Will Knauer. After receiving blessings from Pitchfork and Spin magazine, the group signed with Polyvinyl Records. Spit-shined and smiling, the boys of SSLYBY embarked on their journey toward fame, but success hasn’t changed the band’s grassroots approach to live music. With intimate shows filled with shout-outs and inside jokes, SSLYBY has enough charisma and grit to ground their delectable toe-tapping pop songs.
