Girl Loves Distortion lives, breathes, and creates in Washington, DC, in a working-class community slowly turning more mixed income. While this socio-economic reality may not be uncommon with other DC bands, the neighborhood where they practice and write music together seeps into the DNA of their discography and musical catalogue.
As a result their songs are tinged with an urgency, edge, and point of view that deals with societal issues, diversity, and interpersonal relationships. This could very well be a recipe for pretense, but this trio knows how to temper weighty issues with savvy, sarcasm, and self-deprecation that disarm any heavy-handedness.
To date, Girl Loves Distortion has released two full-length albums on Washington DC's Etxe Records. Their debut "Earth Beings On Exhibit" was released in August 2008. The album garnered acclaim from punk archivist and historian Mark Jenkins being profiled on the May 29th, 2009 radio program Metro Connection on WAMU 88.5FM - Washington DC's NPR station.
Girl Loves Distortion recorded their follow up album "You Better Run, Your Highness" at Inner Ear Studios with Devin Ocampo (Faraquet, Medications) engineering the session. Etxe Records released this album in July 2009 available on heavy grade multi-color vinyl.
