Draped in vulnerable lyrics and obsessive hooks, Philly’s Church Girls plays a new breed of indie/punk rooted in angsty optimism and bittersweet joy that’s been acclaimed by Alternative Press, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, KEXP, & more.

Their new single “I Hate This House” (out Oct 20 and mixed by Dave Schiffman (PUP, Prince Daddy & the Hyena)) comes near the anniversary of the 2021 LP Still Blooms, their most emotionally affecting album yet – devastating in one moment, ebullient the next, and yet overcoming any and all obstacles to become a cohesive, succinctly catchy, and uplifting statement of purpose.

“A friend came to stay with me seeking respite from a brutal divorce,” vocalist Mariel Beaumont explains. “We were days away from our recording session, needing lyrics for the instrumental demo we’d worked on as a band. The song is for him, but about the collapse of any relationship where you find yourselves endlessly repeating the same unhealthy patterns. Our producer John Pfiffner really helped shape the melodies for the song and we’re incredibly proud of how it turned out. I sent it to Dave Schiffman on a whim, who I’m a huge fan of, and was thrilled that he was down to mix it.”
