We’ve always loved Girl Ray but we really, really love their new album Girl. Back in 2017, they released Earl Grey: a debut of expertly-crafted, sweet, hummable songs about longing, friendship, self doubt and contemplation. The show they played here that year was brilliant… If Earl Grey, is having a hot cup of tea on the sofa, Girl is being in a convertible with the windows down on the way to the beach. These are technicolor pop songs seeing them transform their sound. There is no playing it safe here – these are grin-inducing, widescreen R&B-style pop tracks that are going to sound perfect under the sun.
