Girl Friday prep new EP, touring with The Beths (stream “Decoration/Currency”)

Girl Friday
Kylie Shaffer

Los Angeles band Girl Friday was formed at UCLA by guitarist and New Zealand transplant Vera Ellen and bassist Libby Hsieh, later solidifying with the arrival of drummer Virginia Pettis and guitarist Sierra Scott. An explicitly feminist project, Girl Friday are very much a collective in the musical sense as well, with Ellen, Hsieh and Scott all singing, often trading lines and parts within a song. Musically you can hear bits of Flying Nun indie rock, Los Angeles paisley underground and mid-’90s alt rock. You can hear all of that in “Decoration/Currency,” the confident, hooky closing track to their new EP, Fashion Conman, which is Girl Friday’s first release for Hardly Art. We’re premiering the video of the song, directed by Al Kalyk,  and you can watch that below.

Fashion Conman will be out June 28 (pre-order) and not long after Girl Friday will join The Beths’ tour, which includes shows in Detroit, Toronto, Buffalo, Columbus, Indianapolis, Omaha, Denver, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle and more. All dates are listed below.
