Fast-ascending rock quintet, Venus Grrrls, hit the ground running with the release of new single, ‘Goth Girl’, which quickly gained support from both BBC Radio One and BBC Radio Six, further consolidating the feeling that the Leeds-based five-piece are the real deal.
‘Goth Girl’ instantly emanates class, casually name-dropping Siouxsie Sioux (of Siouxsie and the Banshees) within the first verse. From here the song grows in stature as explosive guitars and wailing vocals fuel the frenzy; Grace Kelly’s iconic voice is unmistakeable – the sheer power is as impressive as ever and has us longing for the return of live shows to experience the raw energy in person again. In the meantime, listeners can fully justify playing this song at full volume to somewhat emulate a live setting.
In essence, ‘Goth Girl’ is an ode to the misfits: a ferocious and fiery anthem for anyone who has ever felt like a social outcast and found friendship within their own alternative subculture.
