Girl Friday 'Androgynous Mary'

Girl Friday, will release Androgynous Mary, on August 21st via Hardly Art. Today, Los Angeles band have shared a video for the album’s lead single “Amber’s Knees: A Matter of Concern.” The clip, directed by the band, pays winking homage to the band’s reality TV guilty pleasure go-to Rock of Love starring Bret Michaels, and was embellished with primitive throwback CGI during a feverish editing spree under quarantine.

Of the song, Girl Friday say, “‘Amber’s Knees’ came together lyrically from bits and pieces that we’d all written over a long period of time. It’s the first song we wrote for the album. It has to do with the borders of culturally sanctioned dissociation and the willful ignorance we often employ to keep things functioning, which manifests differently for everyone. We wanted the video to be an extreme example of this, so naturally we turned to reality TV for inspiration. However, that initial idea festered into a visual fever dream fueled by our increasingly dystopian waking reality. As life seems to spiral ever further out of our control, we keep ourselves grounded dancing above a greenscreen sea.”
