Girl Ray have shared “Where Am I Now,” the b-side to the BBC Radio 6 Music playlisted single “Trouble.” The 7″ is released later this month.
Vocalist Poppy Hankin said “The song is about being in a really low and difficult place, and finding that even as you try to come out of it, the thought and pressure of happiness as a final destination can sometimes be scary and overwhelming in its unfamiliarity.”
The distinctive black and white visuals, directed by Rita Maria Conry, are a modern take on an old girl group video and feature the four band members singing into their own bedroom mirrors and making up dance routines. “Girl Ray have known each other forever so I wanted to show that through their looks and glances and private jokes,” says Conry. “I took inspiration for the split screen from the layout of images in magazines, which also adds to the contemporary vibe.”
