NEWS: Girl and Girl announce debut album, release new single ‘Call a Doctor’ and confirm live dates

Australian group Girl and Girl will release their debut album, Call a Doctor, on 24 May via Sub Pop and Virgin Australia (in Australia). Call a Doctor is an unforgettable first bow from Girl and Girl, an audacious and aggressively tuneful blast of a record from this Australian four-piece garage rock outfit. It features frontperson Kai James and his Aunty Liss on drums, longtime friends Jayden Williams on guitar, and Fraser Bell on bass. ‘Call a Doctor’ was recorded at Sundowner Sound in Melbourne, a two-story industrial complex where the band ate, slept, and made music in marathon sessions for two weeks straight with producer Burke Reid (Courtney BarnettJulia Jacklin).
To celebrate the launch of their new forthcoming album, the band share new single ‘Hello‘. Kai shares the following about the track:
 “‘Hello’ is the story of a young man who requires daily consults with health professionals in order to rationalise his self-destructive thoughts and routines. It’s about romanticising your own misery. Letting those deep, dark, dirty thoughts take over. Understanding that even if you could pull yourself out, you wouldn’t because the constant stress and worry are all too familiar and comfortable.”
