Golden Grrrls - 2011 Tour cassette

(self-released)

Now how DIY is this? An eight-track cassette of breakneck, spindly, indie guitar fuzz by Glasgow girl/boy trio featuring former Park Attack drummer turned singer/guitarist Lorna Gilfedder that has no name and no label and is available in a gloriously limited edition of 57.

Soundwise, the Grrrls lo-fi vignettes lean towards the C-86 songbook, all dolefully trilled harmony vocals counterpointed by FX pedal murk and biscuit-tin beats suggesting a darker side beyond songs about Paul Simon. This may be a wilfully back to basics stance, but ‘New Pop’ might just predict the future. Did somebody say sha-la-la?
