GURR — In My Head Review

A Gurn is a distorted facial expression. And a Grrrr! Is an expression of anger. What do ya get when you put the two together? GURR.

GURR’S Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee Jenkins met in American Studies classes in Berlin, and after spending time in the US together, they began a reverberating pop project that referenced U.S. pop culture and also personal experiences on the road.

The duo’s album titled “In My Head” is out 28 October 2016 [on Duchess Box Records]

We had a listen:

Breathless” is discomfort and fantasy rolled into a bouncing rubber-ball of sound. The words are spat out against a screen of semi-sparkling guitars and shimmering cymbals. It’s like non-stop cult English rock but with a sugary-wonky voice and the kind of scorn one might associate with Bikini Kill.

Title track, “In My Head” is just as fast. This girlish harmonies coem admidst a tangle of guitars. It is early Runaways with the associated antagonisms and all defects you might expect, plus some shiny glam.

Moby Dick” is low-key and flexible. With a super bright voice and a rat tail rhythm that persists through the tangle.

Here are garage rock strains with colorful elements and a nod to West Coast Riot Grrrl culture…
