Confession: I tend to overuse words like "awesome" and "amazing" so often they're practically rendered meaningless. However please note that when I use them to describe "Hellhole Ratrace" by Girls they are anything but hyperbolic. I literally cried the first time I heard this 7 minute epic. It's as if someone distilled all the emotional anguish I've ever experienced (and believe me that's a LOT) into a song. It's got a slow build to an Arcade Fire-like crescendo and a yearning so pure and sincere and honest, it makes me wanna rip my heart out and give it hug. Except I think that might be a little messy so maybe not.
Seriously if you only download one song off our blog all year please make it this one.
Hellhole Ratrace - Girls
I don't wanna cry my whole life through. I wanna do some dancing too. So come on come on come on and dance with me!
Girls debut album, the frustratingly titled, Album is out Sept. 22 on Matador.
