About this item

Girl Ray are Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell and Sophie Moss. They deal in fuzzy Moldy Peaches–esque pop gems; shaping a love of off-kilter pop bands like Neutral Milk Hotel, Pavement and Cate Le Bon into a sound that feels instantly familiar and completely lovable. An endearing presence; full of promise.

While studying for their A-Levels, Poppy, Iris and Sophie self-released their first track, "I'll Make This Fun" which was picked up by Brooklyn Vegan, The Line of Best Fit and DIY (among others). BBC Radio 6 Music made it their Track of The Week, and the band were invited to Manchester for a live session with Marc Riley.

“Trouble” is the new single from the North London trio and it's about “apathy and hating yourself for trying to win pointless arguments in snakey ways,” say the band. “It’s about turning into someone you don't like.”


Laura says: It's kind of sweet lo-fi girl pop, but not in a twee way, instead it exudes an effortless cool. There's a sort of Kinks-ey guitar riff and a hint of 80s post-punk girl groups in there (Marine Girls anyone?) which in my book is a recipe for success. Love it!
