If you like your Mazzy Star with more fuzz and better guitar work, then Our Girl is the band for you.
Yeah, the lyrics and vocals on this album are terrific. The drums are absolutely right. But the heart of this collection of grungy shoegaze is the guitar. Sometimes, the overall moodiness of the record will take you on a trip and you’ll get lost, but come back, quick, and pay attention. Because underneath it all is some excellent musicianship.
It’s always great when a truly DIY band makes something you know you’ll be listening to for years to come. Well done!
