Girlfriends And Boyfriends

December 19, 2011

Well, retro new wave certainly isn’t that new – Portland, OR outfit The Epoxies started as early as 2000 – but Canadian trio Girlfriends And Boyfriends offers up some nice 80’s electronic hooks on their new EP Young Ones. Lots of classic keyboard sounds (that’s pretty much a given) with some cool guitar work and a rhytmsection mixing Joy Division with a nice dancefloor feel. I’m hearing a bit of The Reds with some Talking Heads vocal delivery and unlike some other outfits emulating these sounds they offer up some nice variety on their material.

Released in December the band also offers one digital album available as a free download and the EP is available as a limited edition 7″.
