NYC-based art punks Rich Girls share "The Fighter," a new single, an anthem of low-key defiance. From frontwoman Lusia Black: “Fuck bigots, it’s all I thought about this year. If it’s about anything, it’s about that.”
The Deli states, "Against a forward-facing, march-inducing beat and heavy reverb electric guitar, bandleader Luisa Black’s vox maintains a steely defiance, embedding the track with an energy that’s both haunting and invigorating for the listener."
All proceeds from Bandcamp digital purchases of the single will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Rich Girls combine the polish of British art rock with the primitive energy of American garage. Dark, melodic, raw by design, the band began as the solo recording project of Luisa Black after the breakup of her San Francisco garage band The Blacks and evolved around a series of dark pop demos Black wrote while living in London. A steady stream of EPs cemented the Rich Girls high/low sound and found a small following in unexpected outposts across the UK and Europe. Rich Girls live create a big, urgent sound out of minimal elements. Black City, their first full-length, was released in Spring 2018, followed by singles "Better" (2019) and most recently, "The Fighter" on June 26, 2020. The band is based in NYC.
