- Tour Split by Sea Lions / Golden Grrrls
9/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 30 August 2012
I went to see lo-fi indie-popsters Sea Lions and Golden Grrrls at Leeds’s excellent autonomous space Wharf Chambers the other week and they both totally charming so it’s nice that they did this split 7” to commemorate the tour, with an original and a cover from each band.
On the Sea Lions side Slumberland’s Sea Lions have ‘On & Off’, which is a jangly garage pop cut with rich, deep vocals and some harsh, buzzy lead guitar at the end, before their leisurely, almost Joy Division-esque take on Black Flag’s classic debut single ‘Nervous breakdown’ with thin, spluttering guitars and bored-sounding reverbed vocals.
Flip it and Glasgow/London’s Golden Grrrls have a cute lo-fi indie pop ditty with Babies-esque boy-girl vocals called ‘Billy’ which reminds me of reading shambolic photocopied indie zines and listening to Urusei Yatsura in 1997, then they offer their take on NZ legends Look Blue Go Purple’s ‘I Don’t Want You Anyway’, incorporating it into their own fast, earnest janglepop style to good effect and coming across like a really lo-fi cross between Lush and the JAMC. Great original songs, and well-chosen covers too! If you’re into garagey lo-fi indie jangle then this one’s for you.
