Girlpool EP

As the melodies drag and the chords are played with melancholy I’m transported back to sulky teenage days and dreams in the distance that seem to be drowned in bleak skies. Ominous tones and unsteady notes ring out from Girlpool, the LA duo comprised of Cleo Tucker (guitar) and Harmony Tividad (bass), whilst the twanging notes and clipped rhythms add a sense of latent fizz. Paint Me Colors is an ode to despondent evenings alone, the scrawling Jane flirts with psychedelica, and  Blah Blah Blah sees the tempo revved up and the hormones racing. Think Speedy Ortiz, Shampoo, Hole and Lush, frantic and grungey. Honest, catchy, self aware and drenched in rawness, this is the DIY ethos at its best.
