Young Boy is the recording project of musicians Alessandro Baris and Joseph Desler Costa, two half-brothers who were separated at a young age and later reunited as adults. Costa was raised in the U.S. and is best known for his work with Chicago-based experimental indie ensemble L'Altra. Baris was raised in Italy and over the course of many years, the two siblings occasionally communicated, bonding over their shared love of independent music. Sharing similar influences like Love & Rockets, New Order, and Italian film composer Ennio Morricone, the two began exchanging songs back and forth, eventually making the decision to reunite for the first time since childhood with the hope of creating music together. In 2013, Costa traveled to Italy and the duo, working under the name Young Boy, recorded their debut album Other Summers with producer Ivan A. Rossi. They then signed with Texas indie Saint Marie Records and released Other Summers in April 2014. ~ Timothy Monger
