I first came across The Girls At Dawn 6 months ago when I stumbled on their My Space page when I said that they sounded like a “girl group pop that has been mugged by the spirit of punk”. Fast forward to the present day and their recently released debut single on Hozac Records and the best cuts from their My Space now make up this single. Two songs. ‘Never Enough’ is the aformentioned girl group blueprint with fuzzy lazy guitars all over it. It’s also rather good. Flip the 7″ over and you get ‘Every Night’ which is essential more of the same – possibly too similar to the A side for it’s own good – but either way – it’s another top tune. The Girls At Dawn were a secret pleasure – but with this release and leadsong soon to be featured on a Rough Trade Shops Indiepop 09 compilation – I am sure this band are soon to be caught up in a Vivian Girls or The Pains of Being Pure At Heart style hype frenzy! Get this 7″ on Hozac to say you were there first. Or, more importantly if you like 7″ singles that are pop gold.
The band also have future releases planned on Captured Tracks and Tic Tac Totally.
