Today, Brighton trio Our Girl share new track ‘No Big Deal’. The track is taken from their debut EP. The four track EP titled Normally will be released through Cannibal Hymns on Friday 18th November. The EP, the follow up to their debut single ‘Sleeper’, was recorded in the Summer in one day with Steve Ansell of Blood Red Shoes.
“Lots of the songs are about emotional distance – not knowing what someone else is thinking, and how that can make you feel crazy. It can cloud my judgment to the point that shrugging it off as indifference is the easiest thing to do. Although it still reflects those feelings of self-doubt, Being Around is probably the most hopeful song on the EP. It focuses on the positivity in the relationships I have, and the gratitude and care I have towards those people for being who they are, and being there for me in the way they are,” explains frontwoman and guitarist Soph Nathan. Nathan’s honest and personal lyrics float in a delicious array of sounds: rhythmic drum and guitar hooks make dynamic jumps to thick garage-rock riffs, then suddenly cut to beautiful, intimate moments of lone guitar and reverb-hugged vocals.
