Girl Ray share new single “Stupid Things”
Very promising London trio Girl Ray haven’t released a bad song yet. Following last year’s official debut single comes another charmer, “Stupid Things,” which will be out April 14 via Moshi Moshi. With a piano-led melody, there’s an almost ’70s feel to this one, while still in that minimal way Girl Ray have carved out since day one. Lyrically, “Stupid Things” is relatable to most of us. “It’s about crushing really hard on someone, and finding myself doing fucking ridiculous things to feel like we’ve got some kind of connection,” says singer/guitarist Poppy Hankin. “Watching films that they mentioned fleetingly or ordering their favourite drink at a bar. Very stupid but happens every single time.” Listen to “Stupid Things” and a few of their previous songs, below.
Girl Ray’s debut album is in the can and will be out via Moshi Moshi later this year. They’ll be playing some UK festivals this year too, like BBC 6 Music Festival, End of the Road and Green Man. All their tour dates are listed below.
