Church Girls are an indie rock quartet from Philadelphia that balances guitar-driven hooks and vulnerable lyrics. I really like their muddy production mixed with vocals that sound like a crowd chant. On their new single “Telepathic Minds”, these two elements collide excellently and hits the sweet spot that I love in indie rock. The song itself is about trying to get out of a depressive state and the lack of communication between vocalist Mariel and her partner when she was feeling down.
“We all get depressed,” vocalist Mariel Beaumont explains. “I still comically buck against it: waking up early every morning and standing in direct sunlight for twenty minutes because a podcast told me that might help. During this particular bout, I knew I was driving my live-in partner a bit crazy with my silent brooding. I’ve heard telepathic communication doesn’t work so well, but I’m a slow learner.” This situation is referenced directly in the lyrics. As someone who has a partner who burns through wellbeing and wellness fads like hot meals, I totally get this situation. It is frustrating for both parties so I’ve sent him this song and we’ll see what happens…
Church Girls are currently on tour across Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg and the UK. For more info on Church Girls and their tour, visit their website. Enjoy the single “Telepathic Mind” below, it is out now.
