Bio

Anna Buckingham is the powerhouse pop talent behind BOI, hailing from sunny Newcastle where her appetite for song writing started in her teens. Her many years of devotion put into developing and refining her sound culminated in five years in the band Nova & The Experience. But her creative journey saw her wanting to break out as a solo artist after gaining recognition through festival stages conquered at the likes of Splendour in the Grass as a feature vocalist for LDRU. She has also performed alongside and teamed up with an impressive array of artists such as Alice Ivy, Super Cruel, Alex Lahey, TORA, The Chainsmokers, Godlands, Xavier Dunn and ALIUS.

2019 brought in a huge round of achievements for BOI as she released her debut single ‘Imaginary Boys’ which was showered with love and support flowing in from triple j, community radio and Spotify and Apple editorial playlisting. Proving her title for pop domination, she followed up with subsequent singles ‘Sick of Loving You’ and ‘Beast and Beauty’. Rounding off her successful year by winning the triple j Unearthed feature spot playing at This That Festival in her hometown of Newcastle. Excelling her way into 2020 BOI went on to release her fourth single ‘Fairtytale’ followed by her debut EP ‘Look At Me Now’.

Growing up BOI was told to act more like a girl, her moniker reclaims those insults, taking ownership of the label. She has set the pace and is showing no signs of slowing down with more releases set to standby – she's just waiting for the rest of us to catch up!

playful and dominant, with BOI front and centre as she leads this big, bouncy pop charge.

Commanding new track from BOI. If you need a track to make you feel like a boss then this has got the vibes just for that.
