GIRL BANDS

Saturday, 23 June 2012



On Wednesday I went to see Best Coast, who were AMAZING. Especially their cover of Dammit by Blink 182. The first time I heard them was a couple of years ago at the Anna Sui show, where Boyfriend was one of the show soundtrack songs.


I've always loved female/female-fronted bands. Ever since I broke up with my first boyfriend at the age of 13 and found an affinity with Riot Grrrl (LOLZ). My teenage playlists would consist of a lot of shouty grrrl music, such as Bikini Kill, Sleater Kinney and of course, Hole. Then came a long-term love of twee - The Raincoats/Belle & Sebastian/Field Mice/Tullycraft. Recent loves include Best Coast, Warpaint, Haim and since Wednesday, Fear of Men, who supported Best Coast. I leave you with some of my favourite girl music...


Best Coast - When I'm With You


Warpaint - Undertow (love this live session)


Le Tigre - Deceptacon

Haim - Forever

  1. I was at that gig! A friend of mine was sure I'd love them, even though I'd never seen Best Coast before so I took the plunge and bought a ticket. Loved them!
