I've closely followed Girlpool's journey over these past years, specifically, since I heard the song Bla Bla Bla for the first time. Friday was the first time the band had been to NZ, but they still pulled a good-sized crowd at Galatos.
Joining the duo was lovely Jasmin who is 'Being.' performing and reciting her beautiful poetry, exciting things are happening with her, as the release of her first music video approaches!
Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad have both evolved both as people and as musicians since the release of their Ep ‘Girlpool’ back in 2014. The best friends released their third album 'What Chaos Is Imaginary' earlier this year, and although voices have altered, and looks have differed the two have produced a very Girlpool album. Their sound is still fun, just now with more layers of sounds and richer instrumentation on top of the original vocals, bass and guitar.
But vocals, bass and guitar were what Girlpool brought with them to the show on Friday. It made for such an intimate time, and far more powerful experience. I look forward to the day they come back to NZ and to see where their lives take the two of them.
