Girl Ray are Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell, Sophie Moss and Emily Craste. They deal in fuzzy Moldy Peaches–esque pop gems; shaping a love of off-kilter pop bands like Neutral Milk Hotel, Pavement and Cate Le Bon into a sound that feels instantly familiar and completely lovable. An endearing presence; full of promise.
While studying for their A-Levels, Poppy, Iris and Sophie self-released their first track, "I'll Make This Fun" which was picked up by Brooklyn Vegan, The Line of Best Fit and DIY (among others). BBC Radio 6 Music made it their Track of The Week, and the band were invited to Manchester for a live session with Marc Riley.
The band are currently working on their debut album which is slated for a Spring 2017 release. “Trouble” is Girl Ray’s first physical release and comes with a new b-side, “Where Am I Now,” via Moshi Singles Club on 25th November 2016.
