Released as their final taster of the band’s new album, ‘Emo Shred,’ is a nostalgic ode to the carefree moments of life.

Painting a starry-eyed picture of liberation and romance on top of a backdrop of wiry guitar passages and intricate jazzy drumrolls, Oslo trio Mall Girl have released their first new single of 2024.

Regarding the new single vocalist Bethany Forseth-Reichberg said:

“This was the first step into our new musical bubble, previously released as a demo. It has now metamorphosed into a real song but is still a song about just driving around in a Chevrolet by the beach. Picture LA nights, sand between your toes, and nothing on your mind, except that life feels pretty darn good.”

Reflecting on the album’s thematic depth, Bethany shares insights into its narrative, describing it as a blend of breakup chronicles and a coming-of-age story.

Bethany went on to say:

“I guess the album is like a breakup album meets a Bildungsroman (is it like an episode of Girls? Maybe). Ironically, the “post-college-rock” sound could maybe go hand in hand with the post-college experience I’ve had a go at writing about. I am glad we wrote this album and slightly (very) nervous to let people hear our take on Pure Love.”

‘Emo Shred’ is out now. Pure Love, is set for release on January 26th via Jansen Records.
