Listen: Girl Ray Share New Single ‘Girl’

When Girl Ray returned with ‘Show Me More’, they legitimately had the song of the summer in their hands.

Embracing their modern pop sensibilities, picking up a couple of synthesisers and becoming even more affable in their lyricism than before – the trio embraced progression whilst retaining that sense of tongue-in-cheek kookiness that makes them so endearing in the first place.

Now with ‘Girl’ – the title track from their anticipated second record – Poppy, Sophie and Iris have made the soundtrack for daydreaming about spontaneous midnight drives and romancing on holiday in Spain – if only the one you long for would stop playing games and make it reality.

Girl Ray’s effective minimalism still reigns amongst the nostalgia-inducing synths, giving their sound a sense of grounding amongst the dreamy reverie. Poppy’s lyricism is yearning and direct – a bolder, more confident personality shining through in a natural progression from the vulnerable anxieties of ‘Earl Grey’.

‘Girl’ is the sound of Girl Ray having even more fun than they already were – and we’re all here for it.
