Prestige is the third studio album by London-based female three-piece Girl Ray, which includes a series of tracks that revel in youth, love and the excitement of life. The tracks are all equally light, with gentle vocals breezing over choppy guitars and uptempo drum beats.

Prestige is a simple release, using the grooves of the 80s as a soundtrack to an exploration of sexuality, maturity and heartbreak which keeps the tracks engaging.

Where the formula may wear itself out somewhat, with the rudimentary disco grooves blurring into one, the album struggles to beg for repeated listens, yet nearly every track is a treat. Girl Ray are at their finest when their sound is shamelessly euphoric, and this album has plenty of examples of that.
