Hillside Inside 2020
February 7 - 9
Composed of members from Tokyo Police Club and Hollerado, Girlfriend Material is the most anticipated supergroup since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teamed up with the Power Rangers From Space, only featuring more Canadians with electric guitars.
They write indie rock songs for adults; crushes felt by people who have already experienced several relationships, performatively indifferent musings after running into an ex, juvenile feelings crashing up against the realities of life.
That such conflicting feelings translate to a cohesive album comes out of the natural intimacy between four people playing music together in some capacity for years. “We’re friends first,” says frontman Graham Wright. “We’re a really rambunctious group chat second. Drinking buddies third. Then we’re a band, probably at a distant fourth.” Each musician brings their own interpretation to the tracks, informed in no small part by their own life experiences; listeners are invited to do the same.
