Prickly pop-rockers, Girling, brings a raw feel to their music, taking feelings of angst and frustration, and transforming them into a mix of melodic ballads and piercing rock tones. Based in Austin, Girling delivers a collection of sounds that come together in the most delightful way, harmony backed vocals, electrifying guitar riffs that all balance with terrific keyboard playing. The band exudes familiar notes of Spoon, Bright Eyes and a bit of Violent Femmes, taking those influences and injecting their own flavor into the music creating a musical experience you’ll want to hear on repeat. Girling recently released their new album, Here Texas Hear, and will also be performing at the ABGB on May 7th with The Irish Exit so make sure to RSVP while you can!
Girling stopped by Studio 1A on Monday and played some of their music for us. If you didn’t catch the live performance, no sweat, you can stream it right here on KUTX.
