Roxy Girls share new single ‘Dirtier’
Announce new EP ‘A Wealth Of Information’

Due out 5th June 2020 via Moshi Moshi Records

Sunderland post-punk 4-piece Roxy Girls return with the announcement of their frenetic new single ‘Dirtier’. The single is taken from their new EP ‘A Wealth Of Information’, which is due out 5th June 2020 via Moshi Moshi Records.

Speaking about the new single, the band says, “some things are better left unsaid to avoid the clean-up operation needed to right their wrongs. In this instance they weren’t left unsaid, so expression through song was obligatory – I thought the use of dirty in 3 different languages was good for emphasis… The music was written during the small hours in the basement of Pop Recs Ltd, Sunderland and the words shortly before an Uber trip to a soul night in Leeds.”

The last year has seen Roxy Girls light up their homeland with the release of their critically acclaimed debut mini-album ‘A Poverty Of Attention’, which earned plaudits from the likes of BBC 6 Music (inc. sessions for Marc Riley & Tom Robinson), BBC Radio 1, NME, DIY, Clash, Gigwise, So Young, tmrw, Paste, Radio X and more. Similarly, late-2019 saw the band play a number of shows across the UK earning a reputation for their angular and intoxicating live performances supporting the likes of The Murder Capital, Drahla, Du Blonde, Flamingods, The Rhythm Method, Crocodiles, Mush, Duds and Thee MVPS, as well as playing DIY’s Hello 2020 showcase at the turn of the year.

‘A Wealth Of Information’ sees Roxy Girls expand on their unique and idiosyncratic take on the post-punk format. Whilst the band still conveys the same breathless intensity and intricacy in their instrumentation, the new material also finds them developing on their stripped-back sound and experimenting with warmer and more densely structured dynamics. Whereas ‘A Poverty Of Attention’ introduced Roxy Girls high-energy and mordacious lyrical humour to the world, ‘A Wealth Of Information’ exemplifies a more considered insight to the band. Whilst the musicianship is still largely rooted in hook-driven indie-rock territory, the new EP shows a very natural evolution of a sound that has become completely their own.

Speaking about the new EP, Tom Hawick (frontman) says, “A progression in musicianship and technicality, A Wealth Of Information takes A Poverty Of Attention and flips it on its head. Focusing on the tropes of 21st century living and the mundanity that comes with it, these songs focus on themes that have, in one way or another, affected each mortal modern human life.”

With the announcement of the new EP and the band hoping to play further shows later this year, Roxy Girls show no signs of slowing as they continue on their rapid upwards trajectory. For the long-term fans this EP is a clear display of bands thirst to adapt and transform, and for those who are hearing them for the first time, there could be no better moment to find them
