Reliably informed

Exploding onto the North East circuit in 2018 and gaining national attention last year for their fully-formed, adrenalized take on post-punk, Roxy Girls take another step towards the limelight with the release of their latest EP, A Wealth of Information, on Friday 5th June.

The third EP to date, and second to be released via Moshi Moshi Records (one time home to Hot Chip and Late of the Pier and the current label for acclaimed composer Anna Meredith: not bad company to be keeping, to put it mildly), A Wealth of Information comes modelled as a clear successor to last year’s A Poverty of Attention. Again, the quartet storm through seven songs in less than a quarter of an hour, blowing through ideas at such a blur you’d be concerned if it wasn’t so clear that there’s much more to come from them yet.

Combining established favourites of their live set, like the declarative Commands alongside compressed mini-anthem and lead single Dirtier, and the frantic-even-by-their-standards The Droid, A Wealth of Information boasts a sharp wit and ambition behind its immediate endorphin rush.

Whisper it quietly, but queue this one up right after A Poverty of Attention and you might just find that Roxy Girls have stealthily released a debut for the ages right under our noses.
