New Waves 2018: Girlhood

Girl­hood are pro­duc­er Chris­t­ian Pinch­beck and singer Tes­sa Cavan­na. Togeth­er, this unlike­ly duo is bring­ing us sub­lime, new dance music. In our recent Intro­duc­ing arti­cle, we described them as the “soul­ful cousin of Base­ment Jaxx and Groove Arma­da, with nods to the era when Diana Ross and Love Unlim­it­ed were at their peak”.

Last Novem­ber, the Lon­don group released their first EP, Girl­hood Vol 1, which gath­ered their sin­gles to date, includ­ing ‘Say It’, ‘My Boy’ and ‘Bad Deci­sions’. So far, these songs have col­lec­tive­ly racked up more than 600,000 streams on Spotify.

In our recent inter­view, Pinch­beck said: “Our songs work on their own as well as a col­lec­tion, and we want each song to stand strong­ly on its own, but feel like a fam­i­ly when placed next to anoth­er. We’ll be releas­ing a series of EPs with this in mind”. So, expect Girl­hood to sound­track many mid­night jour­neys, flat par­ties and fes­ti­vals to come.
