Eight months on, the Manchester group are back with their second single to date, Girlfriend.
Following their debut release Cool; Fears Chella’s grunge rock, pop punk style’s had a slight makeover the second time around. Where gritty, mosh-ready guitars previously stood, finely tuned levels of precision now stand tall and proud, as their sophomore release shows what the Manchester four-piece have been doing while they’ve been gone for so long.
Girlfriend reflects the expansion of contemporary indie rock, finding itself somewhere between the clean-cut style of indie-pop, together with a love for the energy that exudes from pop-punk and emo. Following Cool’s strongest point, Girlfriend packs its biggest punch within its choruses, as a flood of bass and guitars mingle together in unison with Andy’s vocals in short bursts, that will have you more and more excited to sing along to after each play.
