Alternative pop-punk duo girlfriends (Travis Mills + Nick Gross) drop two intoxicating new singles, “Therapist” and “I Thought About You While I Was Taking A Shower,” off their new album (e)motion sickness out June 17th via Big Noise.
The double singles are similar in inspiration, although differ sonically. The brooding, heavier “Therapist” details the feeling of committing to a healthy relationship, while “I Thought About You While I Was Taking A Shower” features a pop-leaning riff reminiscent of Vampire Weekend “A-Punk,” and the feeling of a relationship so good you want to cancel all your plans.
“It feels like summer and brings back the feeling of a hazy afternoon wrapped up with the person you love,” Mills says about the buzzy feel good song. Stay tuned for the video for “I Thought About You While I Was Taking A Shower” which will drop next week.
Produced again by pop-punk legend John Feldmann (blink-182), the record is both timely and timeless, while providing a fresh twist to the caffeinated pop-punk the duo grew up on, including 5 Seconds Of Summer, The 1975, Phoenix and All Time Low. Conjuring songs that are once pleasingly familiar, warmly unique and passionately vulnerable, the group’s music reflects a renewed vigor for life designed to connect with others.
