Digging on Girl Friday
Dude. Sometimes you press play on a press release and all of a sudden your toes start tapping and you scramble to find out more. This is exactly what happened last night as I listened to Girl Friday; it should come as no surprise that they’ll be accompany the Beths through NA this July. They’ve got that a very Oceanic guitar pop sound, at least on the first 2.5 minutes of their new single; it’s filled with wonderful harmonies and crisp guitar lines. But, one that 2.5 minute mark hits, they turn the song upside down, taking a more raucous approach that’s just as powerfully stunning as the opening minutes. I love a band that can do whatever the fuck they want and still make it sound super cool. Look for their Fashion Conman EP on June 28th via Hardly Art.
