Like any good punk band coming up out of Orange County and LA, Girl Tears have played everywhere. Not “everywhere” like The Echo, The Observatory, and The Hollywood Bowl—“everywhere” like basements, backyards, barns, and presumably beaches and boats and brick factories, too. The trio take a decidedly traditional angle of attack: think the semi-twanged swagger of X, but matched by the concentrated brevity of early Black Flag.
With what’s left of the morning, we’re premiering Girl Tears’s “Panic Attack,” a sixty-one-second up-and-down blast of a song that squeezes in more compelling melodies in a minute than some bands manage in an afternoon. Get loose and check it out below.
