Girlpool’s debut album Before The World Was Big is released next week (June 1st) on Wichita Recordings Worldwide.
Ahead of LP’s release on June 1st, the duo have shared another new track from their much anticipated debut album. Entitled ‘Cherry Picking’, it offers yet a further brilliant example of the Philadelphia based two piece’s snarling minimalism, that has become their forte. Arming themselves with nothing but guitar, bass and two perfectly matched voices, the sparse, dissonant guitar crash into the pair’s sweet, yet angst-ridden vocal harmonies, for a full-on, fresh and raw assault. This stripped-back, minimal instrumentation accentuates the brash, dispirited feeling and air of vulnerability. Cleo Tucker & Harmony Tividad continue to provide proof, if proof be needed, great music doesn’t have to be complicated.
Girlpool have a ton of live shows lined up across N. America and Europe and if they’re in a town near you soon? They come highly, highly recommended. They were utterly sublime in Vancouver last month.
