More New Tunes from Girls Names
I’d be remiss if I didn’t write about the most recent Girls Names track to come out of the Internet. I’d also be in the same boat if I didn’t admit that I have no idea where the group is going musically, in an extremely exhilarating sense. When I first heard this tune, I noted the semi-Orange Juice guitar chops, but was thrown off by the haunting of the vocals. Then came this progression with keyboard intrusions and a brighter tone to the vocals–it honestly reminded me of The Fresh and Onlys traveling back to the early 80s, which basically equates to a hit in my ear. Luckily, The New Life will be in stores from Slumberland Records on February 18th, so I’ll finally get to put all the incredible pieces together.
