Rich Girlz – He's A Lover

Rich Girlz
He’s A Lover

Self-Released
Street: 06.26
Rich Girlz = Thee Oh Sees + The Parrots + Weezer

Here are Rich Girlz, Salt Lake’s distorted, cheesy wrappings of a Burger Records–styled rock n’ roll sound. They’ve got the snotty angst, feelings of societal misunderstanding and the provoking attitude that represents the next generation of garage bands looking for a cool place to have a whiskey-Coke and fries. Whether it’s the ageless desire for something meaningful—as told in the number “Catcher in the Rye”—or their reflection of Ty Segall’s iconic, rebellious stature in “Crosby’s Possession,” it is clear that rock n’ roll’s torch has been passed and that it’s here to stay. So, dig this, and beware: He’s A Lover represents the relevance of the hearts and minds of up-and-coming snotty teenagers with something obvious to declare through the the electric guitar, bass and drums. –Nick Kuzmack
