The Philadelphia-via-Los Angeles DIY friend-core duo Girlpool released Before The World Was Big, their excellent debut album, earlier this year, and they’ve already got new music in the works. Lately, they’ve been playing a new song called “Soup” at live shows, and PressureDrop.TV filmed some professional footage of them performing it at the Bunker in San Francisco earlier this week. It’s slower and more hypnotic than most of the duo’s older songs, but it still has plenty of their intense energy. Girlpool are one of the greatest punk rock bands in the world right now, and they’ve gotten to that point with no drummer; the video below might give some idea how they’ve managed to get there.
Before The World Was Big is out now on Wichita, and if Girlpool turn out to be the type of band who release a new album every year, I will be very happy.
