Girl Friday Share Video For Single “Earthquake” Taken From “Androgynous Mary” Album Out Now On Hardly Art

Share official video for “Earthquake”  From album ‘Androgynous Mary’
Released in 2020 on Hardly Art

 Girl Friday have delivered a surrealistic visual for “Earthquake,” the powerhouse lead single from Androgynous Mary’, their acclaimed album of 2020 out now on Hardly Art.
“Earthquake” is one of the band’s most gloriously raging moments and sees the group power through three and a half minutes of unadulterated catharsis. Girl Friday’s Vera Ellen, who directed the new video, offers this, “The greatest love story is between a song and a video. I wanted to deconstruct the creative process. How do ideas find each other? What happens when the artist lets outside forces get in the way of an idea? How is an idea affected by us, the audience and our expectations? What does an idea have to do to become it’s complete, purest, self. Beyond anything, it’s a story of fighting for true liberation. This will look different for everyone but I hope people can project their own struggle onto the story, and relish in the freedom experienced by the characters (if only for a moment).”

Earthquake is unique, bold rhythms devour the listener into this utterly immersive atmosphere. This fierce barrage of fuzz, angular notes, dexterous tone, and this darting tempo welcomes you into this experimental punk rock-infused arrangement.

Androgynous Mary’ is the debut full-length release from Girl Friday. Burning deep in their music is an unquenchable will to survive. The LA-based band don’t blunt the impact of the themes they work through in their ferocious, knotty rock songs, but they don’t let the more harrowing aspects of being alive and young in the 21st century daunt them, either. Taking full advantage of the dystopian shades of post-punk and noise rock palettes on their arresting Androgynous Mary, Girl Friday nevertheless suffuse their music with abundant optimism. The world is a hellscape, but the four of them are in it together.
Produced by Norm Block, Androgynous Mary’ sees Girl Friday negotiate the stress and alienation that comes with being sidelined from normative society with bold, dramatic guitar lines and tightly wound vocal harmonies. Alone, we suffer under the weight of everything designed to keep us down. Together, we stand a fighting chance. Girl Friday place their hope squarely on that chance — on what we can do when we show up for each other, where we can go when we’ve got each other’s backs. You can listen to Androgynous Mary in its full glory here
Girl Friday’s ‘Androgynous Mary’ is available now everywhere from Hardly Art.
