*TICKETS AVAILABLE FRIDAY 8TH JUNE*
London’s most unapologetic and compelling popstar GIRLI is on the rise. With the release of material including new single ‘Day Month Second’ on June 7th challenging social ideology – this is a pop star with a sting.
“Day Month Second” is an irresistible electro-pop bop that hits back at bad-boy behaviour. Epically catchy, “Day Month Second” sees post-breakup GIRLI encourage her tribe to live in the present, making for a euphoric track with a gritty dance feel. In the run up to the release, GIRLI encouraged her followers to post pictures, videos and tweets of themselves doing things that makes them happier along with the #DAYMONTHSECOND hashtag.
Speaking on the track, GIRLI says “‘Day Month Second’ is my breakup anthem. It’s about wanting to get over someone so bad but not being able to shake the memory of them and how they messed you around. It’s an angry, sad, but also liberating tune. STRUT DOWN THE STREET TO THIS. DANCE LIKE NO-ONE’S WATCHING. BLOCK THEM & BUY YOURSELF A PIZZA & SCREAM IN THE STREET!”
After releasing a string of successful singles from the ‘Hot Mess’ EP, followed by writing sessions in Los Angeles, GIRLI has taken on a more alt-pop feel. Continuing to maintain her socio-political opinions and characteristically honest vibe, she spoke and performed at the #FreePeriodsProtest outside Parliament last year.
Last month, GIRLI took her unmissable show across the UK, including a sold-out headline show at Highbury & Islington’s iconic venue The Garage. Today also sees GIRLI announce her nationwide tour dates throughout October – including a date at London’s iconic gay nightclub Heaven.
