GIRLS.SPEAK.FRENCH, the fresh alternative 4-piece band from Glasgow, kicked off a fuss with the release of their debut single “Britpop Genius”. Having been featured on BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio (both UK and US), the quartet continue to develop the energetic, melodic chaos that is GSF since their establishment in late 2022. The band have already created a sound that Shereen Cutty (BBC Presenter) labelled as “the comeback of indie sleazy”. Recently, the band have amassed over 4 thousand monthly listeners on Spotify and over 15 thousand streams from an audience spanning across every continent. With songs encapsulating lyrical themes of complicated love, angst and social frustration, GIRLS.SPEAK.FRENCH are becoming a band of relevance. The music indulges in the reality of being young and the chaos that this brings. With infectiously uplifting tracks, there is a strength and drive from drummer, Sam Lomas, paired with top-drawer grooves from bassist, Daniel Northfield. Strikingly memorable riffs from guitarist Gio Matvichuk are complimented with his colourful lead lines and the vigorous vocals from Joshua Campbell convey genuine story and thoughts. Despite the initiation in late 2022, GIRLS.SPEAK.FRENCH have been on the scene as various other projects previously. The partnership of drummer Sam Lomas and vocalist Joshua Campbell began at music college in early 2021 and, with a set of acoustic demo tracks named “the.demo.tapes”, a distinct sound was beginning to form. For roughly a year the pair formed bands with different instrumentalists but it wasn’t until both Giacomo Matvichuk (lead guitarist) and Daniel Northfield (bass guitarist) joined that GIRLS.SPEAK.FRENCH truly discovered their potential. The group instantaneously formed a strong unit, with each member sharing an understanding of writing and composition. From playing short gigs on the edges of rugby pitches to performing sold out shows at venues such as Oran Mor, King Tut’s and Nice ‘n’ Sleazy; the past two years have allowed each of the guys to begin to find their feet as both musicians and writers. GIRLS.SPEAK.FRENCH have amassed a strong dedicated following due to the success of big performances such as the support slot for LA band, Sir Chloe, at a sold-out Oran Mor and the support slot for Dundonian soloist, Joshua Grant, at a sold-out King Tut’s. It is certainly true that the band perform large-scale shows and their ambitions are likewise for the future. They also endeavour to make the most of their ties with students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The group have recently played their first headliner at a packed-out Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh as well as travelling to Dundee for a show and performing in Tenement Trail 2023 in Glasgow to a sold-out Van Winkle’s crowd. The band released their three debut singles with the aid of successful Scottish producer, Kevin Burleigh, who has worked with the likes of Fatherson, Paolo Nutini, Lewis Capaldi etc. With the release of the first singles, GIRLS.SPEAK.FRENCH are showing their genre fluidity.
