Another great new single from my local boutique cassette label, Safe Suburban Home. This time it’s the York band Cowgirl. Fuzzy, exciting Indie Rock with Noise Rock & Britpop undertones.
On Only Lasts A Moment, Cowgirl seem to excel at painting a lush sound world of loping melodicism & swirling fuzziness. Simple & pretty lead guitar patterns weave in & out of lazy, midtempo rhythms. I feel that they’ve taken a bubblegum Pop approach to the kind of ethereal shimmer of early Ride, particularly the way they apply the sonic conventions of Shoegaze to the melodic swagger of Britpop.
B-Side Hold Me turns up the tempo & the intensity somewhat, & there’s a definite Shine compilation vibe to the floaty, reverb soaked vocals over the rock solid rhythms. There’s also a Grungy, Alt Rock edge to this too. It’s somewhere in the sonic vicinity of The Bluetones maybe.
Only Lasts A Moment b/w Hold Me is released on 11th September 2020 on Safe Suburban Home. You can pre-order the Cassette or digital versions here.
