I had never heard the phrase “Girl Friday” until a local band by that name came across my radar. It is (was?) a phrase that meant an office assistant who handled many tasks—it was coined at a time when only women were considered for secretarial positions, of course. Watch these bandmates crush the stereotype in a new video below and catch them perform at the Bootleg on July 24, as part of a national tour supporting The Beths.


Get to know Girl Friday in their new video, which features all four ladies sporting bold monochromatic palettes and rocking along to their melodic single, “Decoration/Currency.” Comprised of non-LA natives, the feminist group uses the single to criticize their new home—a place synonymous with a slimy entertainment industry. Their forthcoming EP promises to be just as evocative as this track.


The band’s Fashion Conman EP is due out via Hardly Art on June 28; pre-order here. Grab tickets to see them at the Bootleg here. Follow Girl Friday on Facebook and Instagram.
