About

Girl and Girl are Kai James, his Aunty Liss on drums, longtime friend Jayden Williams on guitar and bassist Fraser Bell. The four-piece garage rock outfit from Brisbane/Gold Coast has a special kinship that shines through in their music and in their electric live shows — Kai’s magnetism backed by Liss’ 37 years of drumming experience. With undeniable hooks and surprising emotional intensity, this multi-generational outfit leaves everything on the stage.

Named as one of the TheMusic.com.au's 'Top 25 Rising Acts of 2021', Girl and Girl caught a wave in 2022. They landed their first airplay on Australian youth broadcaster triple j with the single ‘Garden Song’ and were playlisted on both 4ZZZ and 2Ser, with support from Tone Deaf, Australian Music Scene, LivewireAU, Blank Street Press, MILKY Magazine and more. Internationally, the band scored early radio play for their single ‘Dance Now’ on US radio station NCPR’s ‘Dean’s List’ program as well as stations in both France and Germany. ‘Dance Now’ also garnered massive support locally from Music Feeds, theMusic, 4ZZZ and triple j Unearthed, as well as appearing on Spotify’s The Local List, Fresh Finds AU & NZ, Indie Arrivals and Local Noise, while their Divorce EP was 4ZZZ’s Album of the Week, made the RRR Soundscape and received support from community radio stations across Australia.

After winning the inaugural Gold Coast Music Prize, Girl and Girl became one of the hottest buzz acts at Australia’s 2022 Bigsound Music Conference. The band supported Dry Cleaning on a national tour of Australia before embarking on a debut European Tour including showcase performances at The Great Escape, support dates with Blondshell and an appearance at London’s uber hip Wide Awake Festival.

Girl and Girl are managed by Sundowner Artists (Amyl and The Sniffers), and booked by ATC Live (UK/Europe), Arrival Artists (US) and Billions/Supersonic (Aus). They recently signed a global deal with Sub Pop Records, who released their latest single, All I See.
