When I’m Alone: Clear Vinyl LPRMR1641
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Royal Mountain Records
Release Date: 28th October
A coming-of-age record, a love-letter to the nostalgia drivers that are 80s movies but this is by no-means a throwback sonic-wise, more just some honest and cute alternative pop with hooks and feels you'll find yourself weak at the knees for.
For those who dig: Phoebe Bridgers (of course), Skullcrusher, Soccer Mommy, Snail Mail, Beabadoobee, Luna Vacation, skirts...
Last year the Atlanta artist releaed her debut EP Swan, made with producer Marshall Vore who is known for his work with folk dynamo Phoebe Bridgers. The five song col¬lection found a supportive home with Royal Mountain Re¬cords, and drew remarkable acclaim for a debut EP, earning praise from outlets like NPR, FADER, Nylon, Paste, Under The Radar, Coup De Main and Line of Best Fit among many others.
When I’m Alone is the debut album from Girlpuppy. Across the record, Harvey weaves in several cinematic allusions: a Keanu Reeves look alike pops up in “Teenage Dream,” named for the alternate title of an ‘80s movie he stars in;
doppelgänger-ish love interests in “Destroyer” are “both played by Sam Rockwell / your roles are intertwined,” allud¬ing to the 2009 space drama Moon. The Twilight influence also extends to the lyrics: the movie is about protagonist Bella’s struggle with being alone, and Harvey describes this record as her “Bella era.”
