Oslo trio Mall Girl have released new single ‘Super Lazy Girl’ the latest thrilling taste of the band’s new album Pure Love, out January 26 via Jansen Records.
A riveting amalgamation of sounds and influences, ‘Super Lazy Girl’ opens with a spidery guitar refrain with Bethany Forseth-Reichberg angelic voice pondering over ‘giving love a real go’, before the song explodes into its shapeshifting core section; fusing elements of buoyant indie-pop, with life-affirming dream-pop, all accompanied by the trio’s intricate math-rock/midwest emo inflected guitars and shuffling, jazz-indebted percussion.
Of the new single, Bethany said: “Love: it’s really nice, and really scary. This song feels like a bridge between the sound of the young and the slightly older Mall Girl we are now. The song is in simple terms about (the oh-so-stupid & very-2023 term) ‘situationships’ – and in more complex terms about the fear of committing to something that feels real and more sustainable than hazy nights when you’ve lost your phone and possibly some of your integrity. So, when true love suddenly comes around, how do you know that you are ready for it? I don’t think you know, just have to jump into it and stop being a lazy girl.”
