Australian band Girl and Girl formed in Queensland in 2020, making a brand of spiky guitar rock reminiscent of the post-Strokes/Libertines bands that cropped up in the mid-'00s. Kai James' on-stage charisma and catchy songs quickly gained them a following, and having his aunt, Liss, on drums made for an easy talking point.
Having self-released a string of singles through the pandemic, Girl and Girl have signed to Sub Pop and are currently working on their debut album for the label. With the announcement comes "All I See," which is a taste of things to come. "Lyrics came last for ‘All I See,’ about 3 years after the track, and when I finally sat down and wrote them, I was pretty anxious about whether I had them right or not," says Kai. "A new Miley Cyrus track played on the radio that afternoon, she too, was singing about houses burning down, and I took that as confirmation. So I thanked Miley Cyrus and her great new track ‘Flowers’ and never looked back.” Watch the video below.
Girl and Girl will be at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton in May, and have more UK and EU dates though the end of the month. All are listed below.
