Quick mention of the excellent Grrl Gang. I’ve been meaning to write-up something substantial, but not yet got round to it.
My love of Say Say Me and Otokobe Beaver, both of whom are signed to Damnably Records, led to me to look at their labelmates.
Grrl Gang are from Indonesia. The one girl/two boy trio of Angeeta Sentana (vocals & guitar), Edo Alventa (guitar) and Akbar Rumandung (bass) have been together since 2016. The track on this particular compilation was issued as a 7″ single around twelve months ago, while there’s also a nine-track LP, Here To Stay!, dating from February 2020 which is packed with what I can only describe as essential pop-tunes of an indie-bent. You’ll not be surprised to learn that the trio are fans of the Bellshill scene and Sarah Records.
