Girli announces new Single and EP

girli has today announced her brand new highly-anticipated EP! why am i like this??

In the midst of playing her first ever run of US headline shows, girli has today announced her brand new highly-anticipated EP! why am i like this?? will arrive on 12th May, and include previously released singles, Imposter Syndrome and I Really F**ked It Up, plus the unheard Inner Child. Pre-save why am i like this?? here.

Continuing on her unapologetically pop-laden path, girli has also today released her new single, Cheap Love. The track culminates in a rapturous sing-along chorus, which is already going down a storm live! Written retrospectively by girli, the song explores the beautiful innocence of teen love and not being concerned about being materialistic. Cheap Love is the third single to be taken from the forthcoming EP, and follows in the successful footsteps of the previously released singles.

“I wrote Cheap Love about my first ever relationship I was in, when I was still a teenager. It’s about being in love on a budget; not having loads of money to take each other out for expensive dinners, or even having a car to pick them up in, but it doesn’t matter because being in love makes you feel richer than anyone else. It’s a love song to love; even if you do have the money to do those things, most of the time it’s not the cash being spent that makes it special, its actually just the time you get with that person that matters the most.”

Teaming up once again with director Kassandra Powell, girli has revealed the high-octane video. The playful and sensual visuals see the London-based artist tearing around a warehouse on the back of a motorbike, driven by her love interest. The video will premiere on YouTube at 5pm here.

girli’s new era-defining glam and wardrobe complement a stunning creative directed by the inspirational Fiona Garden (Wet Leg, Years & Years, Grimes and more). Milly Toomey (AKA girli) has been on an explorative journey of self-discovery, only to conclude that she can’t be boxed in. The singer-songwriter had been questioning who she was and had put so much pressure on knowing the answer, but soon realised it’s okay to not always know. To mark this epiphany, girli wrote the music she has always wanted to release.
