GIRL FRIDAY RELEASE VIDEO FOR PUBLIC BODIES

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


Girl Friday's debut album Androgynous Mary is due to be released to the world on August 21st, via Sub Pop Records and Hardly Art Records. In the mean time, they have released the video for Public Bodies, a song that grows with contrasting sections:

The video was directed in New Zealand by Mermaidens' own Gussie Larkin. The band describe Androgynous Mary and Public Bodies in their press release as such:

With bold, dramatic guitar lines and tightly wound vocal harmonies, Girl Friday negotiate the stress and alienation that comes with being sidelined from normative society on Androgynous Mary. "Does the average man feel like he's on the outside?" goes the beginning of "Public Bodies," a wistful jangle-pop gem that shudders open into a snarling punk coda. Taking cues from longtime boundary-pushers Sonic YouthGirl Friday depart from traditional song structures, favouring the rush of jarring turns over the safety of well-defined pop taxonomy. Looking to queer provocateurs like Placebo, they cherish the frisson of incongruous musical elements soldered together: "really dark, heavy things mashed up with quite beautiful things, whether that be a distorted guitar line and a sentimental vocal or vice versa," as band member Vera Ellen puts it.

As usual, you can pre-order your copies of Androgynous Mary at Flying Out.
