UTG PREMIERE: Good English – “Girl”

Good English
Today, we’re teaming up with Dayton, Ohio’s Good English to bring you “Girl,” a gritty grunge ripper that’s sure to sit well with fans of Sleater-Kinney, The Black Angels, and other similar acts. The sibling trio’s newest single is taken from their booming self-titled debut, which arrives next Friday, March 11. Comment below and let us know if you’re a fan.

In regards to the meaning and making of “Girl,” vocalist Elizabeth Rasmussen shared:

“This song was written extremely fast. Like many of our songs these days, it started at band practice with the two chords that are played back and forth. Almost immediately I could hear the melody in my head. I knew I wanted the vocals to come after the guitar chords stop and have it continue like that until the pre-chorus and chorus. Ever since we started playing music together ten years ago the girl aspect has been at the forefront. I knew it was finally time to write a song that was girl-centric and this song just felt like it was the one. I wrote the lyrics from the voice of strong and powerful female to another strong and powerful female (think Kill Bill). In some instances they’re a warning to the other female to keep her guard up, while in other instances they’re kind of snarky toward one another. Before I write lyrics I rarely have a story in mind. Usually there is an idea, or a line, that has come to mind but after that I just let the words flow out. I like the uncertainty of where the song is going to go and what it’s going to mean.”
