The Los Angeles/Orange County punk trio Girl Tears has mastered the art of the three-chord attack, delivering volatile blasts to the point of fury. Four tours and 100+ shows later, playing art spaces, houses, DiY venues, bars, barns, backyards, basements, and everything in between, Girl Tears has delivered a natural, confident progression from their debut.
Woke Against The Tide wrestles with themes of Love/Hate, Good/Evil - and in particular - the space between these polarizing ideas. "Cold Thoughts" and "Uneasy" personify the album's conflict. There are hooks, melody and structure, but also a bit of chaos built on a more complex arrangement that's constantly shifting and evolving, much like the band themselves.
Whereas their debut Tension was more a discovery, Woke Against The Tide is more abstract. It creates a dense and unforgiving experience, really challenging the listener to keep up.
Blistering fast songs about love, hate, death, and all things in between. Los Angeles based punk trio, Girl Tears blaze through 12 catchy tracks, complete with hooks and no nonsense sentiments; all in land speed record breaking time. All of this goodness packaged in the wonderful black and white art of Tristan Ellis.
