I'm in love with Soph's voice. The lyrics hit close to home and the sound is amazing, the way it combines beauty, rawness, and tenderness. I'm dying to hear a full-length release from Our Girl!

The Normally EP, the follow up to their debut single Sleeper, was recorded in the Summer in one day with Steve Ansell of Blood Red Shoes.
“Lots of the songs are about emotional distance - not knowing what someone else is thinking, and how that can make you feel crazy. It can cloud my judgment to the point that shrugging it off as indifference is the easiest thing to do. Although it still reflects those feelings of self-doubt, Being Around is probably the most hopeful song on the EP. It focuses on the positivity in the relationships I have, and the gratitude and care I have towards those people for being who they are, and being there for me in the way they are,” explains frontwoman and guitarist Soph Nathan. Nathan's honest and personal lyrics float in a delicious array of sounds: rhythmic drum and guitar hooks make dynamic jumps to thick garage-rock riffs, then suddenly cut to beautiful, intimate moments of lone guitar and reverb-hugged vocals.

To refer to her as an “old soul” is understating that term. She is like an “every soul”. No matter your age, gender, or sexual preference, these songs hit that melancholy nerve for anyone that wanted someone so badly they felt like they could just die, and the entire world along with them. This is lo-fi music created on a hi-fi level. It evokes nineties bands like Velocity Girl and Belly, yet with a Millennial edge. Can’t wait for more to come from this sad, beautiful flower. mcebbie
