Featured Girl One And The Grease Guns Release:
Jessica 6 / Bring On The Dancing Horse Meat
In April this year, Squirrel Records released the debut 7" from Girl One And The Grease Guns. It went on to be one of the fastest selling 7"s we've ever unleashed on the world. Now, this mysterious collective deliver their follow-up... another 7" release which continues the electro pop approach of the previous single... but this one is even better.
Jessica 6 is 3 minutes of pure pop. Sounding something like The Human League in places, but with a vocal melody reminiscent of The Jesus And Mary Chain, it gets straight to the point and, like all great pop songs, doesn't hang around for too long.
Flip the single over, however, and you get the brilliantly titled Bring On The Dancing Horse Meat (Ian McCulloch would be so proud...maybe) which is a twisting, turning nugget of pop weirdness. Strange keyboard sounds, pulsing bass, trebly one chord Stereolab style guitar, slightly unhinged sounding vocals - it starts one way and ends completely differently, stretching itself out over 4 minutes and coming across like... well, we'll let you make the comparisons for yourselves on this one. Recorded on a damp and dreary cold Spring day out to one of their favourite crumbling old brick buildings within The Ghost Town, and then delivered straight to us at Squirrel Records. With a full album on the way later this year, Girl One And The Grease Guns are shaping up to be one of the most interesting combos out there at the moment.
Released: Monday 8th July 2013
