Girls “Vomit” MP3 + Tour Dates

Photo by Sandy Kim

On September 13th, 2011, San Francisco’s Girls will release their second album Father, Son, Holy Ghost on True Panther. Two years after their debut (Album), and one year after the follow-up EP (Broken Dreams Club) it is the natural third entry in Girls’ recorded trinity, and features their most accomplished recordings to date. Both previous releases demonstrated that behind the noise of a back story loud enough to swallow most bands, stood two true rock craftsmen and traditionalists, who convey their own intimate, unique, and troubled visions.

For Father, Son, Holy Ghost Christopher Owens and JR White holed up in a basement recording studio located in San Francisco’s downtown Tenderloin district and “Vomit” is the first offering from those sessions. The juxtaposition of pain and beauty – hope and misery – which lie at the heart of classic rock and gospel music, are at the core of the song and the album.

Christopher shares his own thoughts: “I wrote vomit before Girls was even a band or an idea, this is one of the first songs I ever wrote along with ‘Substance’ and ‘Headache’ what you’re hearing in “Vomit” is someone who is at life’s lowest, seeing the light, and becoming a songwriter.”
