GIRL RAY SHARE NEW SONG “STUPID THINGS”
ANNOUNCE LONDON HEADLINE SHOW AT THE LEXINGTON ON 23RD MAY
BAND CONFIRMED FOR BBC 6 MUSIC FESTIVAL, GREEN MAN AND END OF THE ROAD
CURRENTLY ON UK TOUR WITH MOSHI MOSHI LABELMATES TELEMAN
North London-based three-piece Girl Ray have shared a brand new track “Stupid Things,” which is released via Moshi Moshi. Lead vocalist and guitarist Poppy Hankin said:
“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. Watching films that they mentioned fleetingly or ordering their favourite drink at a bar. Very stupid but happens every single time, ha ha”.
“Stupid Things” is the follow-up to “Trouble,” the band’s first single for Moshi Moshi which was playlisted at BBC 6 Music and which Stereogum described as “irresistibly feel-good with a biting undercurrent.” Girl Ray – comprising Hankin, Iris McConnell and Sophie Moss – have only recently finished their A-Levels and are already working on their debut album for release this year via Moshi Moshi (details to follow very soong).
Having already toured with Slow Club, Haley Bonar and Ezra Furman and played a packed London show at The Old Blue Last presented by DIY magazine, the band are currently on a UK tour with Moshi Moshi labelmates Teleman. The band are confirmed for the BBC 6 Music Festival in Glasgow on 24th March and will headline their biggest London show to date on 23rd May 2017 at the Lexington. Girl Ray have also been confirmed for this year’s Green Man and End Of The Road festivals.
