GIRL AFRAID - RELEASE DEBUT EP!
Hotly-tipped quartet ‘Girl Afraid’ set loose their debut EP ‘Believe What Comes Next’ on 6th December 2010, available through all good digital platforms.
Hailing from Windsor and formed in the summer of 2008, Girl Afraid started out from the simple desire to have a good time playing some tunes. Wanting to create their own brand of honest rock-pop that would fuse the fundamental elements of hardcore, they spent two years and several obligatory line-up changes honing their craft. Flash forward to the present and the Berkshire upstarts have self-released two singles, been hand-picked for a high profile ‘Alter The Press’ compilation, alongside the likes of Far, and have played numerous dates across the South of England, including BBC Introducing shows & many O2 Academy dates. Needless to say, the band take their craft quite seriously.
After a series of successful shows in Southern plains, the quartet embarked on more extensive touring throughout 2009. It was during this time that the band began to grow, subsequently releasing their debut single ‘Five Weeks in Nebraska’, which cultivated great support from the DIY underground. The band followed on with this success by supporting ‘Wolf Am I,’ before holing up in a quaint 16th century house in Windsor, in preparation for laying down tracks for their impending debut EP (and soon to be released debut album, which is set for national release in the spring of 2011). After rigorous rehearsals, the alt-rockers have completed an EP that inspires and ignites. With a cluster of influences ranging from the hardcore beatings of Every Time I Die, Converge, and Refused, through to the indie songsmith textures of The Smiths, Modest Mouse, and Bright Eyes, Girl Afraid have a knack for addictive melody. From the infectious guile and emotionally tinged ‘Believe What Comes Next’ through to the up-tempo angular rock of ‘When All This is Over, We’ll Just Shake Hands and Say Goodbye’, Girl Afraid have truly created a record that commands your attention!
