Today, June 8th, Sub Pop will release Divorce +, an eight-track digital EP from the newly signed Australian band Girl and Girl.
On the heels of the previously released single “All I See” comes the undeniably catchy track “Dance Now.”
Girl and Girl’s frontperson, Kai James, says about the single and video: “Shooting this clip was probably one of the best days I’ve had in months. I’ve felt lots of pressure with my art and creating lately, so I wanted to step away from that and create something totally unhinged and fun. For the shoot, Rose, our leading chook, just emanated pure joy, and that’s exactly what I wanted to capture, a chicken lady so in love with life, and her chicken form, whose deepest desire is just to feel the wind in her wings.”

Girl and Girl have also shared a 6-minute punk-umentary directed by friend Alexandros Kalas. This video features live and behind-the-scenes performance footage of the band, as well as an interview with frontperson Kai James. You can watch it here.
Girl and Girl just returned from a fifteen-date run in the EU and the UK, which included performances at The Great Escape and London’s Wide Awake Festival, as well as support dates with Partisan Records act Blondshell.

To celebrate this budding union, the group has shared an official video for their new single, “All I See.”
The band’s frontperson, Kai James, says about the single and video: “Lyrics came last for ‘All I See,’ about 3 years after the track, and when I finally sat down and wrote them, I was pretty anxious about whether I had them right or not. A new Mylie Cyrus track played on the radio that afternoon, she too, was singing about houses burning down, and I took that as confirmation. So I thanked Mylie Cyrus and her great new track ‘Flowers’ and never looked back.”
