    Through Girlpool's seven tracks, the band grow into their make-up as a two-piece with aplomb, complementing each other with both voice and instruments.

    All in all, Girlpool is the kind of EP made for those moments when you feel big on the outside, but aren’t so sure on the inside.

    Snarling, quick-witted one-liners are Girlpool’s absolute forte, along with a minimal, as-the-crow-flies approach to writing that wastes no time hitting on each vital melody.

    It’s easy to confuse simplicity with triteness, but the pair have a knack for magnetic and clearly considered ditties.

    Girlpool EP works because these lyrical sentiments seem honest without being sanctimonious. Simultaneously, there’s an appealingly raw quality to the simple guitar-bass setup that makes the shaky blending of the vocals seem like a quirky asset instead of something that needed more practice.

    Girlpool make themselves a deliciously relatable pair, filling the songs with as much soft warmth as harsh fire, putting a sharp, snotty edge onto a new wave of riot grrrl. They’re exactly the sort of act 2014 needs.
