Golden Grrrls - Bonus Disc Edition

    FOR A LIMITED PERIOD BOTH FORMATS INCLUDE A FREE CD BONUS DISC.

    Golden Grrrls are Eilidh Rodgers, Ruari MacLean and Rachel Aggs. What began as as bedroom guitar experimentation soon bloomed in to a fully-formed pop language inspired by the 80s New Zealand and Australian indie pop scene and DIY punk. Drummer Eilidh Rodgers' inventive, loose cannon drumming and perfect lead vocals have framed MacLean's baritone from the beginning with newest member Rachel Aggs (also of Trash Kit) bringing an effortless melodic sensibility on guitar and backing vocals. On their debut album they’ve written 11 perfect songs about life's realities dressed in 3 part harmonies, heart-tugging changes and a playing style derived from punk and c86 enthusiasm. Each chord, beat and vocal line is perfectly placed, essential and simply has to exist as it is in its moment in time. Golden Grrrls’ first releases exemplified the lo-fi aesthetic they came from. Now long sold out, the two previous 7”s on Night School married the roughed-up recording dynamic with a boisterous, inventive melodic sense that has blossomed further on their debut LP.

    With all three members singing throughout, the harmonies and guitar lines interweaving, there’s a warmth in every song that adds to the poignant punch of the the album as a whole. Opener ‘New Pop’ is a blast of breakneck spiked power pop while ‘Think Of The Ways’ is a sweetly melancholic song that plays MacLean and Rodgers’ vocals against each other. ‘Take Your Time’ is a punked-up indie pop gem, while album closer ‘We’ve Got…’ is the catchiest ‘anthem’ you’ll hear from a band that would be repulsed at the idea of writing anthems. To say their debut album has been ‘long awaited’ is a cliché but on ‘Golden Grrrls’ the band have crystallized into something rare and essential.
