GIRL FRIEND - SINGLE REVIEW

Girl Friend - Monte Carlo 
Girl Friend - Monte Carlo

Release Date: Out Now

It is a fact of the modern musical world that bands will take influence from bands from all down the ages and for the most part this is a very good thing. A lot of bands and artists will fish from the same pool of influences, however, Manchester trio Girl Friend are fishing in an a particularly 80s vibed pool that is bereft of many other rods. New single 'Monte Carlo' blends elements of modern dance like Delphic, Temposhark and Sophie Ellis-Bexter but then adds in the breeziness of sophisticated 80s pop from A-Ha to Japan and Duran Duran to Spandau Ballet. This is marvellously floaty, up-tempo and optimistic sounding stuff that is surely destined for a determined montage in a rom-com at the very least.
