Born and raised in Los Angeles, Girlpool is a Philadelphia based two piece made up of Cleo Tucker (Guitar) and Harmony Tividad (Bass). The two met at Los Angeles DIY venue the Smell and quickly grew very close. Their sound is raw, comprised only of a guitar, bass and vocal harmonies. Cleo and Harmony use this stripped-down instrumentation to accentuate their vulnerable yet powerful lyrics.

After releasing their self-titled EP, Girlpool relocated to Philadelphia at the end of 2014 looking for change of pace and scenery. There they recorded their debut LP, Before The World Was Big, with Kyle Gilbride (of Swearin’. Engineer behind Waxahatchee’s Cerulean Salt, Radiator Hospital’s Torch song, etc). Before The World Was Big explores the concepts of growth, friendship, and the interaction between identity and environment.
