“This Is Not The Indie Rock I Signed Up For” ist der traumhafte Titel der aktuellen Single der Band Girl Friday. Der Track ist bereits die zweite Auskopplung aus dem am 21.August herauskommenden Langspieldebüt “Androgynous Mary”. Das Quartett aus Los Angeles wird auf Hardly Art veröffentlichen.  Vera Ellen (g, voc), Libby Hsieh (b, voc), Virginia Pettis (d, voc) und Sierra Scott (g, voc) nutzten Filmaufnahmen ihrer letzten Nordamerika Tour (zusammen mit The Beths und Marika Hackman), um einen kleinen Clip zusammen zu schneiden. Der tiefschöne und tragende Indiesong ist bei uns Tune of the Week.

Girl Friday selbst zu ihrem Song: “The song was born out of a years and years long mental crisis in which daily life felt like being twisted around in an endless carousel spinning at 100mph. In the moments of wicked darkness and what I felt like hell, real love and community was presented to us on a plate – ready to be eaten. We are extremely grateful to have received that. Sometimes, you are too stuck to see what’s in front of you. Sometimes, you don’t understand it. And sometimes, when you do take hold of it, it’s the biggest and most powerful feeling in the world. To feel held. To feel like even if you fall to the ground, someone will be there to wipe your face, to sew up the holes in your pants, to pick you up again. Now, community is the most important thing we have. We have to stand up for our neighbors, invest in them, step outside of ourselves, listen to other people’s pain, and figure out the best way we can be an accurate picture of what love means. And Do Not Forget, we need total police and prison abolition.”
