Música para empezar el día: Girl Ray – Stupid Things

Con 19 años, Poppy Hankin (vocales y guitarra), Iris McConnell (bateria) y Sophie Moss (en el bajo) decidieron conformar Girl Ray, una banda que bien podría ser hasta cierto punto la versión femenina de Flight of The Conchords, con un dejo musical a The Moldy Peaches, Camera Obscura o The Pipettes.

Etiquetadas por Pitchfork como un trío que sabe combinar el Lo-Fi con un solitario piano, y coros llenos de amor, las chicas Girl Ray fueron fichadas por el mismo sello que en su momento impulsó a Florence + the Machine, Hot Chip o Lykke Li. El primer resultado es “Stupid Things”, una canción que recoge todas aquellas tonterías que llegamos a hacer para llamar la atención de esa persona que nos gusta, con su respectiva dosis de inocencia, sensualidad y diversión.

LETRA:

I’m so down
I’ve come around
Now I’m fine
I found mine
You’re so cool
Dunno what I’d do
If you said
I like you too

I’m thinking of you
Just to feel close to you
I’ve never done so many stupid things
Just to make me feel near
But it was just to feel close to you
I’ve never done so many stupid things

And it was just to feel close to you
I called up my friend and I asked her what should I do
But it was just to feel close to you
I’ve never done so many stupid things

Outside the show
Honey, how was I to know
It’s rare for things to flow
Under your control
I’ve never met a boy like you
I’ve never met somebody who
Takes control of the room
And takes control of you

I’m thinking of you
Just to feel close to you
I’ve never done so many stupid things
Just to make me feel near
But it was just to feel close to you
I’ve never done so many stupid things

And it was just to feel close to you
I called up my friend and I asked her what should I do
But it was just to feel close to you
I’ve never done so many stupid things

Recién editado por Moshi Moshi, el primer disto de Girl Ray se llama Earl Gray y ¡tal vez es esa dosis de amabilidad que requieren para sobrevivir al resto de la semana!
