London-trio Girl Ray’s rise has been pretty much metoric. The band only formed two years ago, but now signed to Moshi Moshi Records, they’ve recently put out their debut album “Earl Grey”, to massed critical acclaim. Following that release, the band have taken a brief break from playing basically every music festival going, and shared the video to new single, Don’t Go Back At Ten.

New cut ‘Don’t Go Back At Ten’ is a bittersweet offering, matching those chirpy, upbeat guitar lines with a downbeat vocal.

Poppy Hankin: “After a break-up I was super low, and as clichéd and teen-movie as it sounds, it was truly my friends who got me through it, making sure that I didn’t just mope about the whole time eating pots of cottage cheese and crying. I guess I wrote this one to cheer myself up in a way. Not many of the songs on the album are happy but this one is, kinda!”

The video is a nostalgic blast of early 00’s inspiration, that will either be a throwback to your formative years, or make you feel very old that anyone can feel nostalgic for such recent days. Musically, Don’t Go Back At Ten is one of the album’s highlights, scratchy electric guitars, steady drums and pulsing bass making for a winning backing to Poppy’s creative vocal melodies. Already one of the year’s break-out indie-pop acts, Girl Ray are showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
