Started in 2014 and inspired by the classic 80’s electronic pop of Roxy Music, Soft Cell and Japan Manchester’s GIRL FRIEND found a sound all of their own. A band unknowingly fizzing with modern feel and described recently as ‘honing in on the particulars of passion and desire.’

The band’s songs channel the muse of lead singer Amory, an individual painting himself in lyrics as a character in internal conflict; consumed by his own vanity and either maladjusted or hopelessly hedonistic. All these complex themes are delivered in palatable thrusts of pop decadence and light-hearted reflections. On the song themes Amory states “I found it interesting to juxtapose the dour moods and fatal flaws, with almost clichéd views on style and glamour. To dress the misery in something beautiful. The experiences of sexual frustration and amorous longing are portrayed with a graceful exterior.”
