Girl Friday – Amber’s Knees: A Matter of Concern

LA band Girl Friday create glitchy and propulsive pop, and never have done it as well as they have on new single Amber’s Knees: A Matter of Concern. The track is taken from debut full-length Androgynous Mary, out worldwide on Friday 21 August. It torrents along with ferocity, bounding in leaps with threads that lure the listener in, all full of dramatic guitar lines and tightly wound vocal harmonies.

The seeds of Girl Friday were first planted when guitarist Vera Ellen walked into a friend’s house at UCLA and saw Libby Hsieh playing bass on the couch. Drawn by her unique playing style, Ellen introduced herself, and the two musicians immediately bonded. After a year of playing together, they decided to grow their collaboration into a full band. Drummer Virginia Pettis and guitarist Sierra Scott caught wind of the project from friends of friends, and quickly jumped on board. The fledgling group’s chemistry was undeniable; writing and playing together felt generative and thrilling.
