Formed in 2014 by Mariel Beaumont, Church Girls is one of Philadelphia’s new indie / post-punk bands. Their new EP Cycles, released Jan 25 via Chatterbot Records, grapples with the dissolution of relationships, and the responsibility one faces in setting boundaries for loved ones who encounter the quicksand of substance abuse.
Both Cycles and the band’s 2018 EP Home (featured on Bandcamp’s New & Notable) were produced by Scott Solter (The Mountain Goats, Superchunk, Okkervil River). They’re returning to the critically acclaimed producer to record an LP in 2019. The new sound has shifted the group from an indie rock aesthetic to post-punk aggression, garnering attention from Paste Magazine, who wrote, “with Cycles’ fuzzy guitars and hard-driving drum beats, Church Girls manage to keep the garage rock sound alive without irony.”
Church Girls have been touring extensively throughout the US, UK, and Canada in support of the recent releases.
