New Video: Things Are Okay - Girlpool

Wichita Recordings' Girlpool, the duo of Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad, recently moved to Philadelphia from Los Angeles. They are currently working on the follow-up to their self-titled EP with Swearin's Kyle Gilbride. Below is a good introduction to the band, a new mini-documentary entitled Things Are Okay, which was filmed by Cory McConnell during Girlpool's East Coast tour last year with former Philadelphians, Slutever. Tucker and Tividad will be performing this Friday, January 16 at West Philly Retirement Center. (Photo by Alice Baxley)

Stream: Girlpool, "Jane"

Minimalist garage duo Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad have a cautionary tale for all of us through the vague, yet felt message lying within their cryptic track "Jane". The vocals are as clear as they can be and with good reason - these two have a story to share and they want you to hear every single word, built around a steady guitar line and a slinky bass throb that keeps the tension high as they hone in on their message: "girls and boys if you are listening/if you feel imprisoned/feeling like your mouth is glued tight shut/you were born for a reason/share all your feelings". The screeching cries that accentuate each verse seem to imply some sinister wrongdoing, which makes it all the more effective. Girlpool are officially releasing their self-titled debut EP on November 18th through Wichita Recordings. And make sure to catch their hometown residency at the Echo this coming December.

Artist to Watch: Girlpool

Acoustic punk duo, Girlpool, write unapologetically gut-punching songs with razor-sharp harmonies. Their debut release, the 7 song self-titled album recently released on cassette, has more depth than most over-produced rock albums that are sent straight to commercial radio. Each song clocks in at under 3 minutes, defining "leave them wanting more." Despite their lo-fi approach and punk aesthetic, the recordings are crystal clear, but still full of grit; creating punchy rhythms and plenty of groove without the use of drums. An impressive feat, these two are not to be ignored. And without sounding trite, it's impossible not to recognize the eery resemblance to an unplugged Nirvana. Standout tracks, "Paint Me Colors, and "Slutmouth," prove there is a new generation of feminists. Pulling together pieces of 80s and 90s female punk/Riot-grrrl trailblazers, Girlpool is rightfully claiming them as their own, and joining their voices to create a collective mouthpiece for gender-redefining millennials. Stream the entire album on bandcamp below and see them live tonight at The Bootleg, or April 12 at The Smell. - Jacqueline Caruso
