LA-based quartet Girl Friday yesterday unleashed their full-throttle new single ‘Amber's Knees: A Matter of Concern’. The track is the first cut to be shared from their debut full-length Androgynous Mary, due for release on August 21st via Hardly Art. The album is set to follow in the footsteps of their 2019-released EP Fashion Conman, which was also shared via the label.

According to Girl Friday, ‘Amber's Knees: A Matter of Concern’ was written over a long period of time, often working on it in fragments. The band said, “It’s the first song we wrote for the album. It has to do with the borders of culturally sanctioned dissociation and the willful ignorance we often employ to keep things functioning, which manifests differently for everyone. “

Along with sharing the single, Girl Friday also unveiled the video for the single, which was inspired by their guilty-pleasure viewing of Rock of Love featuring Bret Michaels. “ We wanted the video to be an extreme example of this, so naturally we turned to reality TV for inspiration. However, that initial idea festered into a visual fever dream fueled by our increasingly dystopian waking reality. As life seems to spiral ever further out of our control, we keep ourselves grounded dancing above a greenscreen sea.”
