OUR GIRL – ” Normally “

The Normally 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. You’d think Soph Nathan in particular might struggle to fit in allocated hours for napping these days; besides maintaining an outstandingly colourful shirt collection, and shredding guitars for The Big Moon, she also fronts ace trio Our Girl. Signed to Cannibal Hymns – the same Brighton label backing the likes of Dream Wife, Abattoir Blues, and Tigercub – the band specialise in inward-looking, complex meshes of haze. Our Girl’s latest, Being Around is their most ambitious yet. Our Girl have shared the stage with the likes of Sunflower Bean, The Wytches, and Dream Wife and head out in support of The Japanese House later this year.
