Good Girls (Virgin)

By • Jul 15th, 2021 • Category: Single review

Another single from the forthcoming ‘Screen Violence’ album, this is further slice of pure synthpop with attitude.

A mid-paced banger, with Lauren Mayberry dropping the “f” bomb in the first couple of lines, it indicates that this band are not particularly inclined to compromise, despite their worldwide media profile – probably the most commercially successful Scottish band of the past couple of years.

The trademark combination of pounding electronic keyboards and percussion matched with LM’s soaring voice and expressive lyrics, they definitely draw something from the Garbage template but that is probably a bit unfair, they are definitely no clones and have a very distinctive sound. BM is a big fan and these most recent tracks are definitely a return to form after the slightly off-the-boil previous album.
