Video: Girl Skin “Soft Gun”

Brooklyn-based indie-folk band Girl skin have just released the latest single from their debut album, ‘Shade is on the Other side’.  Front-man, Sid Simons says of new song ‘Soft Gun’: “I was in my living room one day working on a song that wasn’t really going anywhere and my brother and his soon to be ex-girlfriend were upstairs arguing. They were arguing loud enough that I could hear almost every word, so I started writing down some of the things they were saying to each other and then began singing the lines I wrote down. By the time the argument was over and my brother had come downstairs, I had a song.”  Well, that’s how to write a song.  It’s warmly textured, summery fuzzy-folk, complete with dreamy, drifting vocals.  Enjoy.
