Following the success 2019’s album Girl, London trio (and GIHE faves), Poppy, Iris and Sophie – aka Girl Ray – have now shared a buoyant brand new offering.
Propelled by a jangly, playful energy, ‘Give Me Your Love’ is filled with funk-fuelled beats and swirling synths, alongside the distinctive soothing allure of Poppy’s vocals. Produced and mixed by Joe Goddard and Al Doyle from Hot Chip, the track offers a more electro-driven sound than previous releases, whilst maintaining the band’s knack for creating lilting sonic delights, fizzing with plenty of vibrant, uplifting vibes and even some twinkling steel pans. A perfectly colourful summer anthem oozing some much needed optimism, ‘Give Me Your Love’ will leave you longing for summer nights dancing in fields to the endearing, shimmering charm of Girl Ray live. Of the track, the band explain:
“With all the awfulness of 2020 in our heads – it was important to us that it sounded optimistic and hopeful; a song for future summers where people can dance and enjoy music together once again.”
Directed by Alex Cantouris, described by the band as “a queer Midsummar Night’s Dream”, and filled with a dreamy romanticism, watch the simply beautiful new video for ‘Give Me Your Love’ here:
