7/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 August 2018

As I watch my 90s listening tastes flash before my ears on a daily basis here are another band who take the grunge pop template of the likes of the Breeders, Liz Phair and Hole and create new things in a rather assured manner. 

'Stranger Today' is basically my listening circa 1993, full of brash melodic twisty songs that utilise a sort of post Nirvana loud/quiet tension with quiet, atmospheric passages interrupted by bursts of delightful guitar scree. The opening self named track is a kind of blueprint for everything the band do with melodic vocals lurking just under the surface of heavy guitars. This is honed in pretty spectacular style on 'Being Around' which is full of dynamics lurching from quiet verses to exploding choruses and sinewy interludes. 

Our Girl are very good at what they do and 'Stranger Today' is an enjoyable listen and really the only thing the lack is originality. The album's highlight comes on 'Josephine' where they allow them selves time to stretch out their sound and other textures are explored. The atmospheric guitar interplay recalling Pixies on 'No 13 Baby's outro or even the mysteriously damp slowcore of bands like Idaho.
