NEWS: Girlhood reveal debut single ‘My Boy’

Formerly one half of Elephant, Christian Pinchbeck is now working with Kenyan vocalist Tessa Cavanna and a revolving collective of musicians and vocalists on a brand new project, Girlhood.  The pair bonded over a shared love of classic soul, R&B and hip hop artists, such as Barry White and The Fugees.  Their influences can be found on their debut single, ‘My Boy,’ due out on 1st November via Team Talk Records.  It’s a sweet introduction to the pair’s cut and paste approach to soul, hinting at a variety of different possible directions.

Pinchbeck said of the single: “I grew tired of playing instruments, of familiar sounds and techniques; I wanted music to seem alien again, to reignite that spark.  I sold my laptop and bought an iPad and some homemade sampling apps and starting messing about with different cuts, using touch technology and manipulating sound waves in real time.  This birthed a new exciting way to write and when I met Tessa things just fell into place.”  Listen below.
