“The promise of more to come from Girlpool is irresistible.” – The 405
“A minimalist approach to writing urgent, non-conformist and catchy tunes” – The Independent
“An arresting combination” – The Guardian
“Armed with just two guitars, the duo reel you in with seriously catchy hooks and achieve more depth with these songs than any drum kit ever could.” – NME

“If rebellion had a sound, I imagine it would end up sounding a lot like Girlpool… It’s punk in the best sense of the word: fresh, raw, and uncompromising.” – Stereogum
“It’s brilliant.” – The Line of Best Fit
“Snarling, quick-witted one-liners are Girlpool’s absolute forte, along with a minimal, as-the-crow-flies approach to writing that wastes no time hitting on each vital melody.” – DIY
“Fever-pitch vocals, lo-fidelity guitar, and endless cool” – Pitchfork 

Philadelphia by way of Los Angeles duo, Girlpool are following up their critically acclaimed self-titled EP with the release of their debut album, Before The World Was Big on June 5th via Wichita Recordings.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Girlpool is a Philadelphia based two piece made up of Cleo Tucker (Guitar) and Harmony Tividad (Bass). The two met at Los Angeles DIY venue the Smell and quickly grew very close. Their sound is raw, comprised only of a guitar, bass and vocal harmonies. Cleo and Harmony use this stripped-down instrumentation to accentuate their vulnerable and powerful lyrics.

After releasing their self-titled EP, Girlpool relocated to Philadelphia at the end of 2014 looking for change of pace and scenery. There they recorded their debut LP, Before The World Was Big, with Kyle Gilbride (of Swearin’). Before The World Was Big explores the concepts of growth, friendship, and the interaction between identity and environment. The introspective-punk duo captures growing pains and existential quandaries with a honest and true intention. | | Twitter: @girlpoolband
