Announces debut EP Swan due August 20th via Royal Mountain Records
Shares video for ‘As Much As I Can’
Atlanta-based musician girlpuppy has announced her debut EP Swan, due 20th August via Royal Mountain Records (Wild Pink, Alvvays, PACKS). To celebrate she has also shared the video for breezy opening single “As Much As I Can“.
Becca Harvey was working as a cashier at an East Atlanta bakery when the coronavirus pandemic forced her out of work. With an abundance of idle time, she set about finishing the music she had begun writing under the moniker girlpuppy a year earlier, and by the middle of May, “For You” — a dreamy, soft-focus love song she wrote with her multi-instrumentalist partner (John Michael Young formerly of Lunar Vacation) — found its way onto playlists and into the ears of thousands of listeners.
It didn’t take long for Harvey, only a few months shy of 22, to follow up on her success. A breakup shortly after “For You”’s release unleashed a font of new music: downcast, lovelorn songs aided by production from Marshall Vore, a close friend of Harvey’s and frequent collaborator with indie darling Phoebe Bridgers.
“This is a love song to the people in my life that make unconditional love the most difficult,” Harvey explains. “I use the verses to recognise our differences, but also to recognise that we have a lot of shared experiences. I think a lot of it has to do with generational differences, the friction that it causes, and coming to terms with it.
“Lyrically, this is one of my favourite songs I’ve written. It was one of the first times that I wrote something in the moment and realised after the fact that it was exactly what I wanted to say. It’s not meant to be hateful. It’s honest and was my opportunity to exercise vulnerability. It’s a love song.”
This impressive tone and buoyant beat emerges and instantly hooks you, when Girlpuppy joins the ambiance with the crucial and dreamy vocal melodies, the textures showcase this essential detail and this addictive pattern becomes a focus for all. The dynamic vocal range consumes the audience with it’s dreamy vocal tones and intimate lyrics of which provide this boost of emotional attributes that feed into the creation. That emotional upheaval cascades upon the journey and provides this addictive influence that the audience can relate to. This sensational energy exudes from the ensemble and will send a smile to any listeners’ face, a melodic and memorable arrangement that emits this tender characteristic and oozes this delicate magic. As the track heads towards the finale, this intricate guitar pattern weaves throughout the heightened crescendo and ramps up the intensity momentarily.
