Philly four-piece Church Girls write propulsive melodies and achingly vulnerable lyrics wrapped in the throbbing anxiety of post-punk and joyous aggression of pop-punk. Formed in 2014 by Mariel Beaumont, the group has toured extensively across the US, UK, Canada, & Europe and been featured at Audiotree, Paste Magazine, Bandcamp New & Notable and more.

Their new record Still Blooms confronts heavy themes while refusing to let the struggles of life smother its hope, enthusiasm, and energy. The lyric in “Undone” that the album draws its title from (“Unwind the clocks, pull the blinds, and you’ll find the sky still blooms”) feels like a thesis statement. Chiming guitar melodies alongside stuttering palm-mutes and gang vocals express an irrepressible urge to find the bursts of light that shine through the cracks of even the darkest tunnels.

The final line (“Hate that I’m getting used to this sort of thing”) seems like resignation in the abstract, but with Beaumont’s triumphant delivery, it reads more like a proclamation of perseverance. With Still Blooms, Church Girls have crafted their most emotionally affecting album yet-- devastating and desperate in one moment, ebullient and sanguine the next, and yet overcoming any and all obstacles to become a cohesive, succinctly catchy and uplifting statement of purpose.
