Up-and-coming British indie-rock trio Our Girl have released a self-titled new single.
Hailing from Brighton, U.K., Our Girl is led by Soph Nathan, guitarist from The Big Moon, who released their Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, Love In The 4th Dimension, last year and toured the U.S. with Marika Hackman.
After the release of Our Girl’s Normally EP in late 2016 and a triple A-side single, “Being Around / No Big Deal / Sad Fuzz,” last year, “Our Girl” may be their best work yet.
Releasing a self-titled single is a bold move, potentially confusing fans and projecting the idea that “this is the one song we want to be known for,” but luckily “Our Girl” doesn’t disappoint—not even close. The fuzzy-pop, borderline-shoegaze track features chaotic, noisy indie-rock guitars that are perfectly offset by Nathan’s soothing, reassuring pop vocals. The result is a blissful, dreamy haze that you’ll want to relive again and again.
Their new single was the first song Our Girl wrote, played and demoed as a band, and it was produced by Bill Ryder-Jones, British singer-songwriter and former member of The Coral. The band is currently working on their debut album and they will make an appearance at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas this March.
