An ode to true friendship and acceptance, Albertine Sarges’ latest single ‘The Girls’ carries on where its excellent predecessor ‘Free Today’ left off.

Carried along by its rolling guitar riff and lifted to a triumphant finish with a well-placed flute solo, it leaves little doubt that her debut album, ‘The Sticky Fingers’, is going to be very special.

“My friend Harriet Rabe stood all night at the highest point of Helsinki and sent messages in Morse to the sea”, she says. “She worked symbolic performances in the frame of art school”

“In that time we both got in touch for the first time with queer feminist circles and started to explore new ways of being ourselves”, she goes on, “We spent midsummer in Finland. The eagerness, the picnics, butterflies at night. ‘The Girls’ is the soundtrack to those moments when you really trust someone. It is also an expression of curiosity. What if we sank in deeper – into the wide apricot sky?”

‘The Sticky Fingers’ is set for release through Moshi Moshi on 29 Jan 2021. Watch the video for ‘The Girls’ here:
