Introducing: Girls Girls Girls
Get the lowdown on the fast rising indie rockers
Rising pop punk three-piece, Girls Girls Girls may only have two singles and an upcoming album to their name, but they've already proven themselves to be a band we can have high expectations from. Since forming late last year the trio have made a name for themselves in the local scene, with a show supporting INEGO lined up and a recent performance at the Soup Kitchen alongside The Arbourdecks testament to that.
After an outstanding summer run playing around Manchester we can only be left on the edge of our seats waiting for what these guys can produce next.
Speaking with the frontman, Sam, he states the band are in talks with the organisers of Glastonbury Festival for a potential headliner slot next year, but for now is having a cracking time playing some sweaty, glittery Punk Pop in the smaller venues in Manchester.
"Soup Kitchen a few days ago was amazing, playing to 150 people was incredible. A lot of friends and family showed up, and to meet some new people that enjoyed our set was great! It felt like a definitive step forward for the band, and although it may not have been our best performance musically the atmosphere and enjoyment made it off the scale."
The band currently have two singles, Warning Signs (see below) and Never Been Kissed available on Soundcloud.
"We've been playing our new single, 'I Like You Better When You're Not Drunk' live for a few weeks now and it's had a great reception live. We are hoping to have this recorded in a proper studio as opposed to our other singles and even have it out plenty before Christmas. To get some radio play would be class, if it's any good!"
However it's clear for these guys their music isn't just three guys jamming a great sound; through their name, image and content they're trying to get a message across to the music scene as a whole.
"People tell me our band name is awful, but for me is always been to embrace a feminine side to our band. Rock music as a whole is currently very male dominant and with artists like Alex Turner who practically sells his sexuality more than his music, and we want to show people we can be a band without having that sexual appeal. We strive to not be the guys who swagger on stage with a can of beer and a recently lit cigarette shouting 'Hello Manchester!' It's nice to look good, but we aren't really bothered about our aesthetical appearance'
More than anything these guys are so thankful for every show they play and it's clear they take a great passion in writing music and playing shows and are grateful for all the support given to them.
"It's really nice to see people at our gigs and it's always lovely to meet new people and talk, If anyone is up for more glittery pop-punk you should come along to one of our shows!"
These guys truly put on a mesmerising show, but who am I to say that? Check these guys out, enjoy some great music, and support a thriving, local band. You'll be left with no regrets, and a yearning for more.
