Girlpool, Snail Mail
From the venue:
It already seems like Girlpool has been a longtime force within America's thriving DIY folk-punk-pop scene. That's because the music they make is so emotionally vulnerable and irresistibly catchy, it feels more than likeable. It feels necessary. And yet Girlpool's core duo, Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad, are just barely into their 20s, and their new album, Powerplant, is just their second full-length release. It's also a revelatory leap from 2015's Before the World Was Big, with Tucker and Tividad's lovely harmonies and highly relatable lyrics surrounded by bigger arrangements, higher fidelity and, for the first time, drums. Suddenly, Girlpool sounds less like an underground fave and more like the next big thing.
