Formed in 2014 by Mariel Beaumont, Church Girls is on a quest to tap into listeners emotional marrow by lyrically confessing a resistance to growing up, espousing a tendency towards self-destruction, showing the pains of communication, and celebrating the ways we work to become better humans a little at a time.
The 2016 EP Thousand Lives received local praise for its introspective lyrics that complement pop melodies beautifully (WXPN) and smooth sincerity that navigates through moments of folk into straight out rockers (The Deli).
Church Girls released their debut LP Hidalgo in September of 2017. Producer Erik Wofford (The Black Angels, Bill Callahan, Explosions in the Sky) brings a haunting, dreamy element to the record, with songs bound together by brooding lyrics, strong harmonies, and tight rhythms.
