‘Girl!’ is a delightful little melody from Nashville based Terror Pigeon. The floaty saccharine vocal that opens the track is evocative of Stars; the male backing vocal only consolidates this feeling. Yet there’s something more uplifting, more infectious, more involving in this track than Stars ever manage to elicit with their music.
It’s got a driving beat with unobtrusive instrumental throughout; the song is carried by the singing alone. As far as lyrics go they are not that complicated or clever, but that’s what has led to such a brilliantly catchy chorus: I certainly “wanna be there” shouting along in the front row at a Terror Pigeon gig. All I ask is that they come to the UK sometime soon!
