“I was taught what to believe / now I’m only certain that no one is free.” If you’ve seen Girlpool play in the past six months, you’ve probably heard Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad sing these words on “Ideal World,” a careful, slow-moving ode to finding yourself, idealism, freedom; sentiments that run through much of Girlpool’s music. “I feel safest in knowing that I am true,” Cleo sings halfway through, over a bare bass riff, before Harmony follows up, “When I look in your eyes, the idea of you.” It sounds like a Girlpool thesis statement on truth and directness. The song is the first glimpse into the band’s debut full-length, Before the World Was Big, out June 2 on Witchita. We are very excited. That’s the artwork above; “Ideal World” is streaming below.
