Girl and Girl with Jesus Christ Taxi Driver

    • Sub Pop’s latest signing is Girl and Girl: lead singer/songwriter Kai James and his Aunty Liss (Melissa James) on drums, supported by Jayden Williams on guitar and Fraser Bell on bass. The four-piece garage rock outfit from Queensland has a kinship that shines through in their music and in their electric live shows - Kai’s magnetism backed by Liss’ 37 years of drumming experience. With infectious hooks and surprising emotional intensity, Girl and Girl is an undeniably good time.

      Named as one of the TheMusic.com.au's 'Top 25 Rising Acts of 2021', Girl and Girl won the inaugural Gold Coast Music Prize in 2022. The band supported Dry Cleaning on a national tour of Australia before embarking on a debut European Tour including showcase performances at The Great Escape, support dates with Blondshell and an appearance at London’s uber hip Wide Awake Festival.

      In 2023, the band announced their signing to Sub Pop and reissued their Divorce EP, making their debut in their Top 100 of the US College Radio Charts and winning early fans at Brooklyn Vegan, DIY Magazine and BBC6 Music. At home in Australia, the Divorce EP was 4ZZZ’s Album of the Week and made the RRR Soundscape, receiving heavy airplay from community radio stations across Australia. Following appearances at Wave Rock, Yours and Owls Festival and SXSW Sydney, Girl and Girl returned to Europe late in 2023 for appearances at Pitchfork Paris, Rolling Stone Beach, London Calling, and support slots with Water From Your Eyes, and announced their US debut at SXSW 2024. Girl and Girl’s first album, recorded in Melbourne with Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, Julia Jacklin, The Drones) is coming very soon.
