Golden Grrrls are Eilidh Rodgers, Ruari MacLean and Rachel Aggs. What began as a bedroom guitar experimentation soon bloomed in to a fully-formed language inspired by the 80s New Zealand and Australian indie pop scene and DIY punk. Drummer, Eilidh Rodgers' inventive, loose cannon drumming and lead vocals have framed MacLean's baritone from the beginning with newest member Rachel Aggs (also of Trash Kit) bringing an effortless melodic sensibility on guitar and backing vocals.  

Their debut album, Golden Grrrls contains 11 perfect songs about life's realities dressed in 3 part harmonies, heart-tugging changes and a playing style derived from punk and c86 enthusiasm. Like contemporaries Twerps and Sea Lions, they've joined a lineage of pop essentialists such as The Clean and The Feelies - bands who never sacrifice melody to mere primitivism. Each chord, beat and vocal line is perfectly placed, essential and simply has to exist as it is in its moment in time.
With all three members singing throughout, the harmonies and guitar lines interweaving, there is warmth in every song, adding to the poignant punch of the album as a whole. Opener ‘New Pop’ is a blast of breakneck spiked power pop while ‘Think Of The Ways’ is a sweetly melancholic playing MacLean and Rodgers’ vocals against each other. ‘Take Your Time’ is a punked-up indie pop gem, while album closer ‘We’ve Got…’ is the catchiest ‘anthem’ you’ll hear from a band that would be repulsed at the idea of writing anthems.
To say their debut album has been ‘long awaited’ is a cliché but on ‘Golden Grrrls’ the band have crystallized into something rare and essential.
