Girls - 'Lawrence'
A cap-doff to a seriously indie icon
Well, we say “cap doff”, but it’s more of an “unzip your flies and I’ll happily go at it, if that’s what’d please you” – the composition will be packaged as a heart-shaped vinyl single (out November 28) and has been envisaged as a gift to Lawrence. Christopher was supposedly too scared to add his voice to it as he always imagined the Felt frontman singing over its ‘House Of The Rising Sun’-style guitars, and as such, it’s instrumental bar a few impeccably ghostly “[i]whooos[/i]” and “[i]aahhhhs[/i]”. Thankfully that’s all Christopher really needs to tug on heartstrings with his usual hurricane force.
