Lout Promotions presents: Our Girl
Our Girl released their debut album, Stranger Today, in August 2018 to critical acclaim.
‘Stranger Today’ is a special debut for several reasons: First, because it’s the sound of a band beginning to grasp their own value and place in the world, one pep talk at a time. Secondly, because you can hear the trio’s hunger to finally get in the same room and put to tape years’ worth of scrapbooks, half-finished ideas, and a slowly-forming feel for how their first album would actually sound.
“’Stranger Today’ is a superb debut album that perfectly encapsulates the band’s chemistry” – Clash Magazine 8/10
“Soph Nathan’s guitar work across the record is biblical; crunchy chord work becomes filthy shredding and solos in the blink of an eye, all backed by the more-than-solid rhythm section.” – DIY Magazine 4/5
“Our Girl’s hotly anticipated debut LP is a selection of the band’s most striking work to date, which as a whole form the group’s unmistakable identity as one of the most promising new bands on the UK’s guitar scene.” – The Line of Best Fit 8/10
“The band’s wonderful, Bill Ryder-Jones-produced debut album, Stranger Today, channels shoegaze, grunge and psych-rock, creating music that is like a magic spell, an amalgam of swirling, Warpaint-like textures, Pixies propulsion and Nirvana-reminiscent claustrophobia.” – Sunday Times Culture
“This is a record that has been rumoured for a while and had a load of hype levelled at it. But it not only lives up to it, but it surpasses it.” – Drowned In Sound 8/10
“Stranger Today – fresh, engaging and satisfying guitar-y.” – Financial Times
