GIRLS AT DAWN, THE: Back to You: 7”

May 13, 2011

Picked up their “Never Enough” single a while back and thought it was quite good. Far better than the vast majority of “girl groups” out there. Easy comparison is Vivian Girls, but TGAD are much, much better. The sound is fuller, the songs are much stronger, and the vocals are bright and full of life. “Back to You” is a killer. Starts off light and a little fragile, especially how they harmonize, then around the end the airiness of the vocals becomes more solid and singular, with the repeating of “Back to You.” “WCK” has a bit of punk in their sound, mainly the guitar riff. I like the “I’m gonna getcha” with the back vocals taunting the listener.
