Following her sell-out return to the stage this summer, alt. pop sensation GIRLI visits Newcastle as part of her UK tour. Performing at The Cluny on Thursday 25th November, GIRLI brings her signature unapologetic and raw style to the North East.

New single Ruthless, taken from her new EP Damsel In Distress, showcases her powerful vocals, and has racked up over three million audio and video streams, with radio play reaching as far as BBC Radio 1.

GIRLI says Ruthless is a tribute to women and their struggle for equality and liberation in a competitive world. Accompanied by a vibrant and anarchic music video directed by Kassandra Powell, GIRLI styled the video herself: ‘’I chose to style myself and the cast in 18th Century princess attire, to hint at Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette and Vivienne Westwood’s punk take on this era while also nodding to Marie Antoinette herself, who was a woman who was scapegoated and hated by society – this video is pink, punk, anti-establishment, pure ruthless rebellion.’’

Known for speaking openly about feminism, sexuality and mental health, GIRLI recently launched a podcast – GIRLI IRL – featuring candid discussions with LGBTQ+ artists.
