song: "Decoration/Currency" - Girl Friday
Much like a tepid summer day, Girl Friday’s “Decoration/Currency” begins in a most unsuspecting fashion. The lead single from the group’s upcoming Hardly Art debut would leave you to believe this is simple a breezy, laidback melody compromised of pleasant instrumentals and the sounds of airy sopranos. However, everything quickly changes, and those once clear blue skies welcome a furious thunderstorm. In the song’s final moments, Girl Friday allows their music to take on another identity entirely, ditching those once seemingly beach-inspired beginnings for an impassioned, riotous finish that features crunchy guitars, powerful shouting, and thick percussion that catapults you straight through to the conclusion. In a track that thrives on incorporating elements of the unexpected, this is one you just have to experience for yourself.
