Groupie "Ephemeral"


"GROUPIE are a Brooklyn 4-piece who play a captivating style of surfy post-punk somewhere within the venn diagram of The Breeders, Bikini Kill, & The Raincoats.

Like most good stories, this one begins with a Craigslist ad: “Let’s get this out of the way first- I have no official music experience.” This honest confession was the beginning of Brooklyn’s GROUPIE, as well as Ashley Kossakowski (bass/vox) and Johanna Healy’s (guitar/vox) friendship.

They took bits and pieces from the punk, post-punk, and new wave acts of the ’70s and ’80s that spoke to them most—The Stooges, The Cure, The Clash, to name a few, and gracefully blend them with more feminine influences from the ’90s like Sleater-Kinney, Sonic Youth, and The Breeders, crafting a sound that nods to the past while exploring contemporary themes. Guitarist Eamon Lebow and drummer Aaron Silberstein fill out their sound with textural guitar lines and dynamic percussion.

""Ephemeral"" is a ten-track introspection on the transience of life, memories, and heroes. With warm, yet dissonant tones and energetic, impassioned vocals strengthening this theme – it’s a sound that drives right to your heart. Vinyl is limited to 220 copies on purple fruit punch color vinyl, and includes a fancy printed inner sleeve and digital download code."
