It's a tale as old as time: four young people meet while studying. In this tale our protagonists are Swedish and became acquainted at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm not too long ago. They studied jazz, they played together. First two of our friends "formed a duo in an attempt to earn money, playing mostly evergreens and covering anything from the Beatles to Burt Bacharach at cocktail events and openings", but soon enough, after they started performing original songs, their enthusiasm got contagious and they became a four piece.
Now, they weren't the uber awesome slacker combo we are presenting you today straight away. "We have spent several years playing and studying jazz full time, but being stuck at home in the midst of a pandemic took away the usual environment of jam sessions and transcribing, and made room for playing for our own pleasure. We found ourselves playing the kind of music that had gotten us hooked from the start. We initially bonded over a shared love of acts like Big Thief, Phoebe Bridgers, Elliott Smith and the Beatles which formed the starting point of their sound."
Firerbanden Girl Scout ble dannet av jazzstudenter ved Kungliga Musikhögskolan i Stockholm under pandemien med et felles mål om å spille musikken de elsket – artister som Big Thief, Phoebe Bridgers, Elliott Smith og Beatles.
Bandet begynte egentlig som en duo som spilte coverlåter av Burt Bacharach og Beatles på alt fra cocktailfester til galleriåpninger, men da de ble fire tok det hele en ny vei. Den smittsomme entusiasmen som følge av en mer tilbakelent tilnærming til å spille sammen bar frukter. Nå er Girl Scout signet på Made Records, og det ventes store ting i løpet av 2022 – deriblant en konsert på by:Larm 2022.
