About this album

It’s rare to find something as true and beautiful as the band Girls. Christopher Owens and JR White were meant to find each other, sincere rock and roll soul mates in the age of irony. And while that might sound like fancy, it’s closer to the truth than you think.

“If you’re going to San Francisco…”

Just as the Velvets crackled with New York City electricity and Smiths songs came soaked in Manchester drizzle, so the music of Girls captures the mind-bent and sun-brushed outlook of life in San Francisco. Taking the classic California pop template perfected by Brian Wilson and applying a woozy, narcotic makeover, Girls make music that glorifies adolescence - a time of hopeful confusion and love strong enough to hurt you. You’ll detect 50’s surf-pop, 60’s psychedelia and 80’s shoegaze at play here - the West Coast-by-way-of-somewhere-else - but ultimately San Francisco washes over this music.

“We’re all looking for love and meaning in our lives”

Desire and heartbreak are themes that blanket “Album”, from fruitless longing (“I might never get my arms around you/But that doesn’t mean that I won’t try” - “Lauren Marie”) to painful reflection (“Maybe if I really try with all of my heart/Then I could make a brand new start in love with you” - “Lust for Life”).

Christopher’s lyrics go straight for your heart, as they come directly from his. As he notes: “Sometimes the best way is to have simple lyrics. There’s this country song by Tim McGraw where he sings: ‘We’re all looking for love and meaning in our lives.’ To me, that speaks volumes, even though it’s so simple.”
