Grunge-Pop outfit Gaygirl have returned with a taste of what to expect from their imminent debut EP Pleasurehead (out 22nd May) with new single Killing It. Listen below.
Citing PJ Harvey, early Garbage and Radiohead as influences the band have crafted their own depressing blend of sounds. Rawer than PJ Harvey’s shoegaze but lacking the alt-pop edge of Garbage they have developed a unique form of noise-pop, framed by dark, turbulent lyrics.
Singer Bex Morrison describes Killing It as a schizophrenic track:
about feeling stuck and the flitting emotions between trying to make things okay, and being on the verge of having a complete meltdown. The extreme up-and-down contradicting lyrical content is reflected throughout the song and as it progresses, falls more and more out of control.
When we play the song live it’s pretty chaotic and we wanted to make sure we got that across in the studio by experimenting with various vocal and guitar effects, and just having a lot of fun with it.
On the live scene Gaygirl are becoming renowned for their hypnotic performances, and the crashing crescendo of Killing It slots perfectly into their live sets.
Killing It is available to listen to now on Spotify and SoundCloud, and features on their debut EP Pleasurehead which is released on Friday 22nd May via Permanent Creeps.
