Girl Crush – Warm Blooded [Review]

British-Swedish duo Girl Crush unveil their dreamy electropop single ‘Warm Blooded’.

Despite only having two releases, the pair are quickly establishing their self-described “Promcore” aesthetic. Though the vocalist has previously had success with another act, she is choosing to hide her identity, so the music can speak for itself, with no preconceptions. The twosome self-released their first single ‘Small Talk’ in March this year. The track rapidly found its way onto Spotify’s tastemaker Fresh Finds: Hiptronix and Electrending playlists and garnered airplay on Amazing Radio. Not only are the duo making waves on the electronic scene, they are also a fashion brand, with a limited-edition piece of streetwear being launched with each release.

Girl Crush’s newest release, ‘Warm Blooded’, exhibits their penchant for lost youth and heartbreak. The track is drenched in heartfelt tones, melancholic synth melodies and tells the story of being lost in love. Vocally the single is reminiscent of Jessie Ware and Låpsley but musically it has the electronic edge of Sälen ― it even manages to have the same haunting qualities of Sinéad O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’.

You can catch the pair at their headline show at The Waiting Room in London on the 6th September.
