Girl Scout is Emma Jansson (guitar, vocals), Evelina Arvidsson Eklind (bass, vocals), Per Lindberg (drums) and Viktor Spasov (guitar). "That we'd be a band was clear from the first time we played together. Viktor and Emma had brought a couple song ideas, but after 3 hours rehearsing as a band suddenly there were six almost finished songs. There is a natural collaboration between us, where everyone's musical contribution naturally gels together and forms our collective sound", they say.
Likening them to Alvvays, The Ramones or Best Coast, critiques didn't hold back their praise for the quartetts first release and fans quickly followed, already asking for more music. So be it. With their second single "All The Time And Everywhere" Girl Scout will follow up their rowdy love letter to a never forgotten high school sweet heart with defeated hymn about the overwhelming weight of the world.
