Artist Profile: Roxy Girls
After spending some time in the labor intensive world of creativity, the word on the street is that Roxy Girls are now settled with a style and a sound which they find inspiring...luckily for all us, i’s quite a thing to behold!
Part serious punk, part slapstick pop, Roxy Girls seem to aim for the dancefloor with lick-heavy guitars, yet play with their audience by continually altering their song structures and rhythms. Early references have been levied toward intellectual art-rock bands like Franz Ferdinand and Talking Heads, high praise for a group still to release their debut EP.
Thankfully we’ve not got long to wait for that EP, produced by Dave Curle, as its arriving in mid-February, followed shortly after by a launch gig.
It’ll be interesting to see if their hard creative work pays off, but we’re sure it will...
Track Pick: Dangerous Driving
Using a groove based, funk driven, blend of new wave meets Gang of Four, the Roxers kick out the jams through use of spiky Talking Heads style guitars and Slits style tribal drumming. Interesting word play about, er, driving dangerously, creates images of Sam Shephard and Karl Hyde cut and paste style lyrics; equal parts serious to slapstick.
All in all this is a great place to start if you're looking for an introduction to their world.
Roxy Girls will be playing alongside Static Blue and Mayfare on the 1st of Febuary 2018, click here for more info.
