LISTEN: Girl Ray – ‘Stupid Things’

Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell, Sophie Moss and Emily Craste, aka Girl Ray, first formed whilst studying for their A Levels, and have received acclaim from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit and BBC 6Music for their last fantastic single ‘Trouble’. Now, set to release their debut album laer this year, they’ve shared a catchy, uptempo new track.

‘Stupid Things’ is filled with all the lush vocal harmonies and  uptempo scuzzy hooks we’ve come to expect from the band, with an added depth of musicality with rich, twinkling piano melodies flowing throughout.

Of the track, vocalist and guitarist Poppy says:

“It’s about crushing really hard on someone, and finding myself doing fucking ridiculous things to feel like we’ve got some kind of connection…”
