Premiere: Moaning Lisa make their intentions clear on big new single, Carrie (I Want A Girl)

A song about being queer, loving women, and the legendary Carrie Brownstein.

Although they've only been making music together as Moaning Lisa just over a year, Canberra four-piece Moaning Lisa haven't skipped a beat - last year releasing their fantastic debut EP, The Sweetest, amidst plenty of gigs and award noms. And they kick off 2018 in much the same fashion - kicking arse and taking names with the huge-feeling new single, Carrie (I Want A Girl). Blending all the best elements of 90s grunge with a more modern sound, plenty of reverb, bombastic drums and a hint of snarl in the vocal delivery, Carrie... is "named after rock icon Carrie Brownstein* and referencing a slew of prominent queer women in music and popular culture," says the band, celebrating sexuality - "something we all need after the shit show surrounding marriage equality this year."

The single officially drops this Friday with a video clip featuring a slew of queer/NB artists in Australian music from the likes of Camp Cope, Huntly and more, but until then tuck into the audio below, and catch 'em live at a few upcoming dates, including Psych Fest (all listed at the bottom).

UPCOMING SHOWS:

Tue 6 Feb - The Landsdowne Hotel, Sydney (Dream Wife Support)

Fri 23 Feb - Projects, Sydney (Psych Fest 2017, All-Ages

Sat 24 - Manning Bar, Sydney (Pscyh Fest 2017)

Sat 3 Mar - The Tote, Melbourne (Psych Fest 2017)
