Rapper-singer duo Judy Fontaine and Baby Boy make up AG Club, short for Avant Garde Club and have garnered much acclaim and exposure over the course of the last few years. The group unveiled their fourth album Imposter Syndrome on September 16, 2022, under Epic Records, the band’s first studio album to be released by a major record label. The Bay Area-born band cannot be defined as one genre, as they switch from chill hip-hop to explosive rock, still able to create incredible sounds and eclectic music. Imposter Syndrome features innovative sounds and diverse plays, an album only adding to AG Club’s rising fame. “Every album is just like a stamp on the timeline, you know? There was Halfway Off the Porch when we were trying to jump off the porch and start out life and then, after Expectations, we started to get a little bit of notice. And so, we were like, ‘Hey, let us do our thing you know’.” Over the years the duo’s released four albums, three independently, and have achieved over a million streams worldwide.
AG Club spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about how they overcame the overwhelming expectations from their early success and translated it into the music on their latest album, ‘Imposter Syndrome’.
