Swiss indie rock/alt/psych band Annie Taylor have revealed their new single “Schoolgirl“, alongside an accompanying video.
The track features on their sophomore album ‘Inner Smile’, due to be released this Friday, July 7 through Taxi Gauche Records. Pre-order your copy here.
The band have recently recorded their eagerly-anticipated second album (‘Inner Smile’) in Bristol, UK, with uber-producer Ali Chant (Yard Act; Katy J. Pearson; Aldous Harding; Sorry). Annie Taylor also recently performed two triumphant shows at The Great Escape 2023.
The band’s signature sound is evermore present in ‘Schoolgirl’, a mixture of contemporary indie rock similar to that of Wolf Alice, combined with 90s girl band rock, making it a track that would be at home on an angsty teen movie soundtrack. Undeniably catchy, the punchy guitar driven single is made up of snappy riffs, tight snares and lead singer Gini Jungi’s pristine vocals, capturing the excitement and uncertainty of falling in love in a fresh and honest way.
Speaking about it, Jungi said: “Falling in love can be thrilling and confusing at the same time. Especially when you’re not sure what you’re about to get yourself into. It can make you feel bold and shy, excited and nervous but still, it’s a feeling that fills you up with energy and hedonism.”
“Schoolgirl is a reflection on the early stages of a relationship where everything is new and exciting, but it can also make one feel extremely confused and nervous. The lyrics capture the feeling of being young and in love, not knowing where it will all lead, but being excited to find out,” Jungi continued.
