South London's Wolf Girl are steering an individual path.
Matching fuzzed out guitar pop riffs - think Weezer, or Spook School even - the band's painstakingly personal lyrical approach delves into some wonderfully fresh areas.
New album 'Every Now & Then' arrives on October 19th, and it finds Wolf Girl tackling queer feelings, mental health issues, identity and more, but doing some in a vivid, and often humorous fashion.
It's a pretty riveting listen, all told, with the four-piece proving to have enough pop panache to hold it all together.
New single 'Toast For Dinner' is a case in point. A dual guitar burner, it sneaks through astonishing frank lyrics about burn out and depression amid a plethora of in-jokes.
Healey from the band explain...
“This song is a tribute to my love of amateur magic, dual guitar riffs and toast. Toast is maybe the greatest food of them all and it is also my go-to if I’m burnt out and can’t find the energy to eat/cook a meal. This song is about a point where I was finding it hard to say no to things and ended up constantly feeling physically and emotionally drained. Sometimes I fantasise about there being multiple versions of myself like in Fantasia’s ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ so I can invest myself fully in everything that I do.”
