Promcore duo Girl Crush, which consist of Ottilia Kjulsten and David Sugar, share their dream-pop cultivation of surrounding comments that blame women for, well about everything, in an ironic jab of electronic melding. The Swedish/British ensemble have garnered a rapid amount of support and success around their first singles and continue to build around their sweet productions and sharp lyrics. “Blame Girls” throws on their signature sound of wistful pop chimes while relaying a concise message.
“We wrote the song at the same time as the Brett Kavanagh hearings,” explains Kjulsten. “I kept looking at the comments on different videos and news stories, anything from Natalie [Emily] Ratajkowski’s Instagram to general news, and found the most ridiculous comments going as far as blaming girls for their pure existence. David had started this amazing beat and I started writing. The song is a celebration to women and an ironic punch to people who think less of us.”
Opening with a playful burst of electro-pop, the uptempo and carefree production bounces off Kjulsten’s apathetic lines for those on the end of delivery: “I never ask for attention, baby / just happen to walk out the door / maybe your dick needs attention, baby?” Assertive and comical, flipping the usual male gaze and choice of words, the track’s strong willed demeanor is perfectly portrayed in dream-pop.
Future-forward in the realm of a juvenile ethos, sonically speaking, Girl Crush maintains their coating and charms once again while celebrating women.
