North London trio Girl Ray are releasing a new album, Girl, on November 8 via Moshi Moshi. Now they have shared its title track, “Girl,” via a video for the song. Crusoe Weston directed the video, which features the trio driving to the beach. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

The band’s Poppy Hankin had this to say about the song in a press release: “Well what’s it about? An intense crush where you lose all reasonable brain thoughts and can’t conceive why the hell things shouldn’t work out in rom-com style perfection. This one is for you to roll the windows down to on those hot hot hot summer days. Blast it loud blast it proud.”

Previously they shared its first single, “Show Me More,” via a video for the track. “Show Me More” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Girl Ray features Poppy Hankin (guitar/vocals), Iris McConnell (drums), and Sophie Moss (bass). Girl is their second album, the follow-up to their cleverly titled 2017-released debut album, Earl Grey (it was our Album of the Week and #3 on our Top 15 Debut Albums of 2017 list).

Girl was recorded at Electric Beach Studios in Margate with Ash Workman (Christine and the Queens, Metronomy). Whereas their debut album was a twee-pop gem, Girl is inspired by more modern and electronic pop sounds, in particular Rihanna and Ariana Grande. Crusoe Weston directed the “Show Me More” video, which features the band riding around on bikes.

In a press release the band say “Show Me More” is about “crushing really hard but having to play the long game and wait it out because your boo is playing savage games. It’s your classic pop banger. Steamy dance floor. Drinks on me.”
