Rich Girls combine the polish of British art rock with the primitive energy of American garage.
Dark, melodic, raw by design, the band began as the solo recording project of Luisa Black after the breakup of her San Francisco garage band The Blacks and evolved around a series of dark pop demos Black wrote while living in London. A steady stream of EPs cemented the Rich Girls high/low sound and found a small following in unexpected outposts across the UK and Europe. Often a trio, sometimes a duo, Rich Girls live create a big, urgent sound out of minimal elements. The band is based in NYC. Black City, their first full-length release, is out in March 2018 on Tricycle Records.
