Our Girl have been wowing a growing army of listeners ever since their debut gig supporting Honeyblood in September 2015. It was during that fledging performance that singer/guitarist Soph Nathan realised that, of the five bands she was then playing in, Our Girl was the perfect home for her redoubtable songwriting.
The product of a thriving Brighton scene that includes The Magic Gang, Dream Wife and Abattoir Blues, the band are capable of switching from stark tenderness to pulverising noise in a flash. Nathan's honest, personal lyrics float in a delicious array of sounds: rhythmic drum and guitar hooks make dynamic jumps to thick garage-rock riffs, then suddenly cut to beautiful, intimate moments of lone guitar and reverb-hugged vocals.
The trio have recently shared the stage with Sunflower Bean, The Wytches, The Japanese House, Dream Wife, ALVVAYS and Marika Hackman. They were also handpicked to play at this years Radio 1 Big Weekend on the BBC Introducing stage. Soph Nathan, bassist Josh Tyler and drummer Lauren Wilson have been developing their devastating sound ever since, Their first physical release, ‘Sleeper’ released on Cannibal Hymns received critical acclaim and national radio play on Radio 1, XFM and Amazing Radio. The trio released the follow up to ‘Sleeper’ last autumn with a four track EP titled ‘Normally’ that only enhanced their reputation as a formidable recording act. In September 2017 they recorded their debut album in Manchester, England with Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral). With an artillery of new material and a producer who perfectly fits the bands dynamic, the first record from Our Girl is set to be a truly special showcase of one of the finest songwriters in a generation. Soph Nathan and Our Girl are ready to step into their moment.
