Girl and Girl Share Official Video For “Mother” From Call A Doctor

On May 24th, Australian group Girl and Girl will release their vibrant debut full-length, Call A Doctor, on CD/LP/DSP via Virgin Australia (AU/NZ) and Sub Pop (ROW.)   
Following the infectious lead single “Hello,” which recently peaked at #1 for two weeks in a row on the subModern Alternative Specialty Chart, comes an official video for their latest single, “Mother.”
Girl and Girl frontperson Kai James shares: “I wrote Mother about my beautiful mum and how our relationship has matured and evolved from my late teens to my mid-twenties. Shifting from this all-knowing being into something a bit more human. There’s beauty in that shift, relief at the fact that no one’s perfect, but then fear and doubt, too, as you step out and slowly learn to trust and back yourself.”
Mother was directed by Andy Freer and Dan Flood of the internationally acclaimed Australian theatre company Snuff Puppets. Click HERE to watch.
Call A Doctor is an unforgettable first bow from Girl and Girl, an audacious and aggressively tuneful blast of a record from this Australian four-piece garage rock outfit. The band is comprised of frontperson Kai James (singer, guitarist) and his Aunty Liss (drums), along with longtime friends Jayden Williams (guitar) and Fraser Bell (bass). Call A Doctor was recorded at Sundowner Sound in Melbourne, a two-story industrial complex where the band ate, slept, and made music in marathon sessions for two weeks straight with producer Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, Julia Jacklin).
As previously announced, the band has confirmed North American & Australian tour dates, with additional appearances at Eurokennees in France and End of the Road in the UKGirl and Girl are fresh off performances at this year’s SXSW Music Festival. Rolling Stone included the band in their Day 2 SXSW round-up and said: “every member of Girl and Girl is too young to have experienced the garage rock revivalism of Y2K firsthand, save Aunty Liss, the drummer who supports her nervy nephews in this band of Australian post-punk traditionalists. Fronted by the wiry Kai James — handsome and jittery, never reclusive — the group treated sacred post-punk texts as if they were a common language when they played the 13th Floor, giving their barbed hooks and sideways riffs real kick. They’re carrying a torch without succumbing to nostalgia or formalism, all because they’re intoxicated by the noise they make.”
The band will return to the States in late April for a North American tour supporting fellow Aussies Royel Otis. See below for a complete list of shows.
