If you’ll remember, an indie rock band called Girls put out a couple of highly-acclaimed records: Album in 2009 and Father, Son, Holy Ghost in 2011. The latter was my absolute favorite of that year, a completely devastating, stirring and cathartic piece of work. But not long after its release, the frontman and main songwriter, Christopher Owens, decided to leave the band. Luckily, it seems he’s been hard at work on his own because today he reveals the first taste of his solo project. The mellow “Here We Go,” like his past music, is raw and honest through and through.
The single is from his forthcoming album Lysandre, named after a girl he met in France while in town for a festival. He describes the debut LP as “a coming of age story, a road trip story, a love story.”
Lysandre comes out January 14th, 2013.
