Girlpool share new songs, touring with Porches, playing Baby’s 5th anniversary
Girlpool just shared two new songs - "Lucy's" and "Where You Sink" -- which they talk a little about:
"This song responds to stubborn feelings from a past relationship. I wrote 'Lucy's' a couple of years ago to sort through some droning thoughts about hope, distraction and love. 'I swear I'll be alright/although (you) are in the sky,' continues to resonate. These lyrics distinguish a time when my partner would check out from our relationship. I reassured myself that even when they were not present, and I was, that I would be alright. I was hopeful that my partner would find resolve from their struggles, which stifled their capacity to provide the kind of care and attention that I needed. I practiced nurture, and I hoped that they would find the ambition that I saw in them." - Cleo Tucker
"'Where You Sink' explores our fixations on characters in our lives and the projections we create. It explores our natural human desire to be made special by another. I wrote it when I found myself looking at one person from various angles (emotionally); I found them to be beautiful in toxic but charismatic ways. It's about loving someone who you don't really have the chance to get to know fully because their time is spent trying to get out of their head, further from reality. It explores the complications of trying to get close to someone who ultimately wants to be far from themselves." - Harmony Tividad
You can listen to both songs below.
Girlpool will be on tour with Porches starting October 24 in Greenfield, MA and wrapping up in Philadelphia on November 6. Right before the tour starts, Girlpool will play Baby's All Right on October 23 which is is a 5th birthday for the venue (which opened in 2013 with a BrooklynVegan CMJ party being the first show) and is also with True Blue and Alice Cohen and the Channel 14 Weather Team. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 12 at 10 AM.
