When two best friends start a band, songs get filled with inside jokes. In My Head, out October 14th on Duchess Box Records, takes the listener on a journey of Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee’s friendship, their lives, and a step further into the world of Gurr.
Having met in an American Studies class in Berlin, and after spending time in the US together, the US West coast sound was an obvious influence on their music, but Andreya and Laura draw from a wide set of pop culture references and personal experiences for their debut album. How to deal with one’s own ignorance (first single release “Moby Dick”), let yourself go and have nights that turn into mornings (“Breathless”), or deal with the loss of love through someone else’s perspective (“Yosemite”).
Instead of telling stories of how it was, the two friends want to create a world of characters, stories and feelings everyone can relate to − and everyone can tell in their head for themselves. First Wave Gurrlcore they call their own genre, always with a slight and acknowledging nod to riot grrrl culture and yet stressing that they want to invent their own style − they pair straight−forward garage rock tunes with more psychedelic and wave elements on their debut album.
