Editorial Reviews

Glasgow's Golden Grrrls are Eilidh Rodgers, Ruari MacLean and Rachel Aggs. What began as bedroom guitar experimentation soon bloomed into a fully-formed pop language inspired by the 80s New Zealand and Australian indie pop scenes, DIY punk and Glasgow's own rich pop history (think The Vaselines, The Pastels). Drummer Eilidh Rodgers' inventive, loose-cannon drumming and lead vocals have framed MacLean's baritone from the beginning, with newest member Rachel Aggs (also of Trash Kit) bringing an effortless melodic sensibility on guitar and backing vocals. Golden Grrrls' first releases exemplified the lo-fi aesthetic they came from. Now long sold out, the two previous 7''s on Night School married the roughed-up recording dynamic with a boisterous, inventive melodic sense that has blossomed further on this, their self-titled debut LP. For Golden Grrrls the band has written eleven perfect songs about life's realities dressed in three-part harmonies, heart-tugging changes and a playing style derived from punk and classic crash-pop enthusiasm. Like contemporaries Twerps and Sea Lions, they've joined a storied lineage of pop essentialists such as The Clean, The Bats and The Feelies -- bands who eschew complexity for concision and who never sacrifice melody to mere primitivism. Each chord, beat and vocal line is perfectly placed, essential and simply has to exist as it is in its moment in time. With all three members singing throughout, the harmonies and guitar lines interweaving, there's a warmth in every song that adds to the poignant punch of the album as a whole. Opener ''New Pop'' is a blast of breakneck spiked power pop while ''Think Of The Ways'' is a sweetly melancholic song that plays MacLean and Rodgers' vocals against each other. ''Take Your Time'' and ''Date It'' are a punked-up indie pop gems, while album closer ''We've Got...'' is the catchiest 'anthem' you'll hear from a band that would be repulsed at the idea of writing anthems.

Format: Audio CD
the slumberland record label can seemingly do no wrong right now, what with the release of this self-titled debut, 'the new life' by girls names, 'waiting for something to happen' by veronica falls and the upcoming 'discipline and desire' by wax idols later this month. this particular release by golden grrrls--funny name admit it...--takes this 41 year old back to good old 1994 when bands like suede, hole and in this case, velocity girl put out their best work. swapping vocals effortlessly like sarah and archie did for 2 albums, g grrrls blow it out of the water. personal favourites include the gorgeous "neil simon", the previously released "new pop" and every other single jingly jangly track at hand. superb job. AND BUY IT ON VINYL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
