Golden Grrrls / Sea Lions Tour Split 7″ Golden Grrrls

Available via Bandcamp

Slumberland group Sea Lions came over to the UK for the first time in July 2012 to play Indietracks and embarked on a tour with UK group Golden Grrrls. To commemorate the occasion they released a limited tour 7″ which now sees a world wide release. Both bands contributed an original song and a cover version.

Sea Lions take apart Nervous Breakdown by Black Flag, turning it into a shamble-core nugget of shrill guitar versus Adrian Pillado’s laconic vocal delivery and contributed On and Off – as close to an anthem as Sea Lions get. Golden Grrrls tackle I Don’t Want You Anyway by Kiwi group Look Blue Go Purple, remaining fairly faithful to the original with some added punk nrg, while their original is a garage pop bullet in the form of Billy, which sees Ruari MacLean take lead vocal to counter the female backing. 4 songs as good as any you’re going to hear this year.
