​Girlpool Unveil Sophomore Album 'Powerplant,' Share New Single
Philadelphia DIY duo Girlpool charmed us with their 2015 debut Before the World Was Big, and Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker have just unveiled plans for the full-length follow-up. They'll release Powerplant on May 12 via Anti-.
It finds them continuing their tradition of delivering illustrated album art, which you can take a look at above. The 12-song tracklisting, meanwhile, can be found down below.
The electric guitar- and bass-wielding twosome have prefaced the album with lead single and opening track "123." It opens almost uncomfortably quietly before erupting into a burst of energetic garage rock that showcases a fuller, drum-incorporating sound from the band. Rest assured — Tividad and Tucker's unique voices and entrancing harmonies still manage to float to the top of the mix and steal the show, though.
"123" has arrived with a video directed by Nick Rattigan, and you can scroll past Girlpool's just-announced North American tour dates to watch it down below.
