L.A. punks Girl Friday have released their genre-defying new single entitled Decoration / Currency which you can stream now via Bandcamp.

Girl Friday is a self-described “genre-confused rock band” made up of Vera Ellen, Libby Hsieh, Sierra Scott, and Virginia Pettis. Taking inspiration from a plethora of influences ranging from the SCUM Manifesto, socialist propaganda, pro-women rallies, The Breeders, witchcraft, mall goths, and surf rock of the 70’s, the foursome have effortlessly fused together a seemingly clashing collage of musical styles with intelligently poetic lyrics wrapped in a pro-active, political mentality.

Additionally, Girl Friday have been recently selected out of 150 artists across the USA & Canada as a top 10 finalist for the: House of Vans: Share The Stage competition.

The finalists were selected by Vans and music industry executives with the winner being hand selected by Schoolboy Q to open for him in Chicago.

Check Girl Friday‘s artist profile up now on Consequence of Sound.

Decoration/Currency
lyrics

You’rs a failure if you breathe
or take your finger from the pulse
In the city of sex and debt
what is real is what is false
Visions of personal success
and shallow conversations
Your name as your currency
Your love as decoration

I see you as you are (because I want to)
They see you as you want (because they need to)
I see you as you are (because I want to)
They see you as you want (because they need to)
We are just holographs on stage

And if you look around (you might lose your way)
Isn’t it funny how (painting on your face)
Were all the same
In love and falling down (I’m gonna float away)
Got one foot on the ground (one foot on the ground)
The other in the grave

I see you as you are (because I want to)
They see you as you want (because they need to)
I see you as you are (because I want to)
They see you as you want (because they need to)
We are just holographs on stage

In the city of sex and debt your name as your currency
In the city of sex and debt your love as your decoration
I see you watching, I see you watching your friends
Currency, Decoration, Currency, Decoration
In the city of sex and debt your love as your stage
