"Boy In Blue"
SINGLE + VIDEO
+ EP/VINYL ANNOUNCEMENT
Following up their recent release 'Monster', Swedish break out act Girl Scout continues its streak of high quality output with new single 'Boy In Blue'.
"'Boy in Blue' embodies the feeling of being stuck in a relationship", Emma recounts. The second song off of the bands upcoming sophomore EP combines a dry guitar riff with a sparkling top line and a chorus fit for singing along. "It’s about growing apart and realizing you are completely different people that really don’t have much in common other than your infatuation with each other, and losing your own sense of self during that relationship. It is truly heartbreaking coming to that realization."
'Boy In Blue' comes with a music video filmed during the photo shoot for the new Girl Scout press pictures. With its DIY style it perfectly represents the Girl Scout spirit – not to mention the guest appearance of a ghost dancing the Macarena.
With 'Boy In Blue', Girl Scout are now in full swing towards their second EP. Titled Granny Music and set for September 2023, it will be available on vinyl as a split together with their first EP Real Life Human Garbage.
During the release of their debut EP Real Life Human Garbage the quartet managed to get their name on many people's hot lists, both critic's and listener's alike. NME, DORK, Under The Radar and more tipped them as ones to watch 2023, others augur them the same shooting star career as Wet Leg. Features in Clash, The Times, The Guardian, Gaffa, Atwood, Billboard, diffus, Visions and too many more to name them all here sang the band's paean as one of the most innovative and energetic newcomers around, likening them to Alvvays, Phoebe Bridgers, The Smile or Big Thief. The songs aired on radio stations all over the world, from BBC 1 to 6 Music, P3, Amazing Radio, Triple J, Double J, FluxFM, Puls, egoFM and a lot more. And Girl Scout, consisting of Emma Jansson (guitar, vocals), Evelina Arvidsson Eklind (bass, vocals), Per Lindberg (drums) and Viktor Spasov (guitar), keep pushing, gearing up for their 2nd EP.
Song and video are out June 14th.
