THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Imagine your nan is in the boot of your car with a croissant in her mouth and hears Bikini Kill for the first time. That could be you. It will never be us, as we are not Bikini Kill, and we are not your nan. We are Lambrini Girls. Bon appétit.”
Phoebe Lunny (vocals/guitar), Lilly Macieira (bass) and Catt Jack (drums) first joined forces amongst the anarchic waves of the Brighton underground music scene. They soon formed a strong artistic bond over their creative common ground; not just a musical connection, but also in the shared messages they set out to convey. The band’s driving punk rhythms and ability to hold a mirror up to hot-button societal issues draws inspiration from the likes of alternative stalwarts Le Tigre and, yes, Bikini Kill, combined with a biting, tongue-in-cheek lyrical style all their own.
A longtime staple of the Brighton scene, in 2021 the release of their first singles brought the band’s sonic barrage to a whole new circuit of ears. They’ve since performed alongside the likes of Shame, Gilla Band, Destroy Boys, Dead Sara Heavy Lungs, Joe and the Shitboys, PVA and Pist Idiots. Further appearances included 2022’s Great Escape Festival and a slot at Rough Trade Recommends. Now they’re lined up for a strong 2023; tearing through Europe, the festival circuit and probably the entire world.
They have quickly garnered a reputation around tastemaking circles as an unmissable new prospect and one of the most exciting live acts of the post-pandemic generation. Simply put, Lambrini Girls are here to take over the scene, one fizzy bottle at a time.”
