On my last night in Austin for SXSW, I was so exhausted from running around for 5 days and nights straight that my legs were wobbly. Most of my music friends had left the day prior, but I managed to dance my heart out solo to Cut Copy at one of Culture Collide’s showcases anyway, then I made sure to trudge myself over to Our Girl’s midnight set. I probably looked like a zombie. I’m eternally grateful I did so, because the London trio gave me the perfect set of gazey indie rock to close out an epic week. And now, they’re back with a new tune, appropriately titled I Really Like It, to remind me of that meaningful evening of fine music. Just when I thought I had enough of SXSW, and as I was feeling a little disconcerted from not running into people I knew, I remembered how spectacular music can be and how serendipitous any day can be when there are magnificent bands to see, even when you’re alone. Dulcet and sweet like Angel Olsen yet raw and infectious with shades of Wolf Alice, I Really Like It is quite the charming lovestruck token, a crush song to enhance our crush on Our Girl.

Our GIrl’s eponymous single may be the first song they ever wrote, but it’s not the first single to capture the fancy of their avid fans. The British trio released their self-titled debut EP in 2016. And they’re off to a glorious start this year with this gazey roiling, scuzzy ripping jam. Sweet and tart, naughty and nice vocals embellish the track, giving it an addictive prickly bite. Saccharine guitar pop and thrashing grunge rock meet halfway on the incredibly contagious track. Our Girl will be making an appearance at SXSW next week. Hopefully we’ll be able to catch them while we’re there. Stream/download Our Girl’s Our Girl via major outlets, here.

Brighton, UK trio Our Girl carries a deliciously fuzzy and hazy shoegaze and dream pop sound on their indie rock music, as illustrated on their self titled debut song. On Our Girl, there’s plentiful honeyed sweetness to go along with a wistful, Wild Nothing evoking dreaminess and an MBV like scuzzy droning. A hint of Beach House melancholy glides along with beautiful vocals, just underneath the warm radiance of the song’s pop tendencies. Little else is known about the trio so far, but hopefully there’s more to come in 2015.
