PREMIERE: Girl York – Dandies
There’s something about Perth. Maybe it’s the isolation forcing a sense of independence and self-efficiency, maybe it’s the freedom being removed from the East Coast grind grants you or heck maybe it’s the water. Whatever it is, Perth consistently produces benchmark, genre defining artists… Case in point Girl York and their latest film clip Dandies.
With all the nonchalant swagger of The Dandy Warhols hitting their peak in the early 00’s, Girl York have today released Dandies. A perfect slice of genre bending indie that pushes its listener as much as it cradles them and holds them close.
Instantly warm on big open chords and jangly guitar arrangements, Dandies¸ announces itself early as a slice of intelligent, remarkably cool and incredibly approachable slacker indie that would sit handsomely in whatever coming of age movie you got addicted to in high school. So meticulously constructed, considered and executed that it feels effortless. A testament to the brilliance of song construction Girl York are capable of.
Like getting caught in a rip, Dandies, is 3 minutes 39 seconds of noisey indie that you can’t fight.
A song built lyrically on a couple’s holiday lashed full of genuine happiness and reminders that life will probably be fine, Dandies, is Girl York’s “nice” song. Asked of the meaning behind Dandies frontman Shaun Martin states:
"The track serves as a reminder; everything is going to be okay, life is worth the risk and there's no reason to worry, only reasons to enjoy the present, reasons to exist!"
A truly lovely and truly untouchably cool track, Dandies is the second track from Girl York’s upcoming Sophomore EP. A taste of things to come that tastes far too sweet to be left on only one listen.
