Single Review: It Needs You –Girl Friday

Following their debut album Androgynous Mary in 2020 – and a couple of moody but catchy tracks in 2021 (see ‘You’re Getting a Dog’ in particular) – LA quartet Girl Friday return with their latest single, ‘It Needs You’.
Chugging, fuzzed-up riffs, plodding drums and bass, and morosely soothing vocals drive the song forward, before searching shoegaze effects, delicate guitar lines, and deep harmonies add a subtle depth and intimacy. There’s something timeless about the production, and despite the relatively low urgency, ‘It Needs You’ will get right under your skin.

‘It Needs You’ is out now
