Awesome garage band

September 8, 2009

I have been hyped about Girls (the bands name mind you!) ever since I heard their song Lust for Life earlier this year. It took some time before newer tracks surfaced from their upcoming debut with the same name.

Therefore I found it fitting to make a hypeworthy entry about this band as their album is being released very soon on the 22th of september. It was a bit difficult to find info about this band other than it being based in San Fransisco, California but I manage to dig up this:

In 2006, Christopher Owens and Liza Thorn began a music project called Curls, which dissolved itself when Liza decided to focus more on her new band, BRIDEZ. Not to be dissuaded, Christopher recruited San Francisco’s infamous ladykiller Chet “JR” White to join him and changed the band’s name to Girls.

I would describe the music as garage rock, with some pop references. I am not usually a fan of this genre but at times you can find some nice bands within it. As it’s about the bands talent and not the genre it represents. The singers voice might be a bit of a hate and love affair as I had some trouble to enjoy it at first. It was the bands melodies that caughed my ears. However now I see them blend together very nicely now.

Heres a little description I found about the album:

Built on the powerful songwriting of Christopher Owens and the ethereal production of Chet “JR” White, Girls recorded Album in a variety of bedrooms and rehearsal studios in their adopted hometown, San Francisco. The resulting 12 tracks are the perfect San Fran summer record, evoking a narcotic, sunny afternoon in Dolores Park, yet promising the eventual hangover of summer’s departure. Album is self-described as “honest, loose, ethereal, obnoxious and perfect,” it is a sincere tribute to the majesty of great pop music and the healing power of rock and roll.
