Goodboys, comprising Joshua Grimmett and Ethan Shore, catapulted into the spotlight almost overnight with their first major collaboration, "Piece of Your Heart," alongside Meduza. This track wasn't just a hit; it was a global phenomenon, accumulating over a billion streams, securing a Grammy nomination, and achieving double platinum status in the UK. Such unprecedented success from their initial release set an incredibly high standard for the duo, presenting both an opportunity and a challenge in defining their future path in music.

The journey following their breakout hit was as introspective as it was creative. The pandemic period offered them a chance to pause and deeply consider their musical direction. This wasn't about recreating the success of "Piece of Your Heart" but about delving into the essence of their artistry. They explored beyond the expectations set by their debut, seeking a sound that was authentically theirs without being confined by the shadow of their early success.

This process of recalibration was not just about finding their signature sound but also about aligning with their core as musicians, ensuring that their future projects resonated with both their artistic vision and their growing global audience. In this time of reflection and experimentation, Goodboys have been diligently working on new material, ready to showcase the depth and breadth of their musical abilities. Their story is an example of the unpredictability of the music industry, where a single track can redefine careers and set new artists on a path of self-discovery and evolution.

As they continue to navigate their journey, the duo remains committed to producing music that not only captivates but also truly represents their identity as artists in the ever-changing landscape of electronic music.
