FEATURE: Girlfriends Are Here For The Pop-Punk Fans New & Old Alike
In the midst of an emo revival, girlfriends have done their part in revitalizing the pop-punk you used to love (or still do) when you grew up. Listing bands like Blink-182, Green Day, and Sum 41 as influences, girlfriends infuses their music with catchy melodies, driving guitar riffs, and energetic drum beats that are impossible not to tap your foot to. Their music takes listeners on a nostalgic journey back to the early 2000s while simultaneously infusing it with their unique style and flair. Girlfriends have managed to create a perfect blend of old and new through their music, attracting fans who yearn for the pop-punk era of the past while also attracting younger listeners who are discovering the genre for the first time.
Girlfriends are currently on tour with the iconic Avril Lavigne, playing massive shows all across Europe and winning over hearts left and right with a performance that is pure pop-punk energy. Fans of pop-punk music who crave the nostalgic beats and energy of the genre will definitely not want to miss girlfriends‘ electrifying shows, where they showcase their uncanny ability to capture the essence of pop-punk while infusing it with their own unique style.
Prior to the performance, we sat down with the duo, consisting of Travis Mills and Nick Gross, to discuss their music, influences, experiences on tour with Avril Lavigne and their upcoming EP, which includes the two already released singles Over My Dead Body & Life’s A Brittany. This interview will be with you shortly but for now, we’d love to get the word out about their energetic performance and to give you a glimpse of their liveshow through the lens, as captured by Eva van den Bosch.
