The gritty grunge-pop sisters, Elizabeth, Celia, and Leslie Rasmussen – better known as the fierce trio Good English – remains in your face and at it once again as they unleash their second single “Girl” (listen below). The track is off their highly anticipated self-titled full-length slated to release on March 11, 2016 and available for pre-order through iTunes.
Like many legendary songs, as well as others on their new album, this one was written extremely fast and naturally. “Almost immediately I could hear the melody in my head. I knew I wanted the vocals to come after the guitar chords stop and have it continue like that until the pre-chorus and chorus,” stated Elizabeth. With lyrics influenced by the concept of a strong and powerful female figure, she continues, “In some instances the lyrics are a warning to the other female to keep her guard up, while in other instances they’re kind of snarky toward one another. Sometimes the song ends up in a completely different direction than I had thought, but with this one, it went right where I wanted it to…into the mind of a girl!”
Recorded in Troy, Ohio at Popside Recording Studios by Micah Carli, “Girl” was co-produced by Good English and Mathew Franklin who is known for his work in Cadaver Dogs and The Skulx. “Mathew was a huge help in finding that hook. He came up with the digressing melody behind the chorus that is so catchy and sing-alongy it made us all want to jump in a car, roll the windows down, and belt it out with our best friends by our side. It has an anthem-like feel to it that we have never had in any of our previous recordings,” explained the girls. “Girl” was mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, NJ.
In support of the new album, Good English will be heading out for an expansive national tour including a stop in Austin, TX for South By Southwest later this month to play a few showcases. In addition, they will be releasing frequent music videos, working on new material, booking further regional tours, keeping their creative juices flowing and fans happy.
