Brighton punks Lambrini Girls return with their latest single, Help Me I’m Gay, hot on the heels of being announced to be a part of The Great Escape’s First 50 – which is taking place at London’s Shacklewell Arms on November 15th. 

First performed live at the band’s socially distanced, seated shows at Brighton’s Dome during lockdown, the track fully came to life as lead vocalist Phoebe Lunny came out to her mum on stage after downing three bottles of wine, unbeknownst to her – her whole family was also watching the performance on livestream and Christmas have never been the same since. 


Speaking on the track, the band state:

This song is about the trivialisation of queer people. Shag whoever you want, don’t let anyone put you in a box and if you do ever find yourself in one, then know you can shag your way out of it.

Having been a staple of Brighton’s scene for a long time, Lambrini Girls’ 2021 singles were what propelled them to gain attention from a whole new bunch of listeners. Since then, the three-piece have supported the likes of Shame, Gilla Band and Pist Idiots, and are set to support Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes next month.
