Friday Freebie: The Tenth - Boys We Don't Know

A musical project from two actresses should be a complete nightmare. When I first heard about The Tenth, the musical project from Taylor Blackwell (Dolphin Tale 2, Magic City) and Harley Quinn Smith (Yoga Hosers, daughter of filmmaker/podcaster Kevin Smith), I didn't think there was any way it could be good. But, somehow it is. It's not Bob Dylan or Radiohead, but their debut EP, Boys We Don't Know, is a blast. Each song is about a different boy (complete with an intro track to explain the backstory). They describe it as bubblegum punk, and that basically describes it perfectly. It's fun, a little bratty, and we're way too old to be enjoying this as much as we are. If you care about the breakdown, Blackwell takes the lead for the first three songs, Smith sings the last, and they both provide backing vocals on the other's songs. 

You can listen to "Kyle" below. Boys We Don't Know, the debut EP from The Tenth, is available now for free on Bandcamp. If you don't toss them any cash for the download, be sure to at least give them a follow on Instagram.
