Fronted by guitarist Soph Nathan, also a member of The Big Moon, Our Girl’s debut EP, Normally, is a thoroughly enjoyable listen. On the inspiration behind the music, bassist Josh Tyler said: “Lots of the songs are about emotional distance – not knowing what someone else is thinking, and how that can make you feel crazy. It can cloud my judgment to the point that shrugging it off as indifference is the easiest thing to do.”

Our Girl are gearing up for the release of Stranger Today, the group are seeing buzz from release of ‘I Really Like It’. This touching slice of Indie Rock builds over four-minutes, with heartfelt lyrics about those nervous feelings you have around someone you fancy but are unsure how they feel back.

Based on the group’s back catalogue Stranger Today will present a refreshing take on the Indie Rock genre, offering great musicianship without sacrificing melody. With the rise of groups like The Big Moon, Dream Wife, Wolf Alice and The Orielles, 2018 is a great time for female-fronted rock bands.
