Single Review: Girls – Laura (Fantasytrashcan/Turnstile)

By | Published on Monday 23 November 2009


One of California’s most interesting recent indie rock buzz bands, Girls is frontman Chris Owens’ opportunity to showcase an artistic flair held back for sixteen years by the Children of God cult he found himself born into.

He’s made up for it since, finding himself in San Francisco after years of letting the world take him where it felt best, and knowing that making positive prog pop was a destination worth fulfilling.

This effort may not quite have the passion of previous single, ‘Lust For Life’ but this remains an addictive, playful melody that sweeps over the bleakness of a failed relationship, self-aware that there are worse things for us to face. TM
