Toronto twosome Moscow Apartment are back with “New Girl“. This lush slice of indie-pop is our latest glimpse at forthcoming EP Better Daughter, out on July 10th. The sophomore release sees the duo, consisting of Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla, putting the weight of a full band behind their folk sound.
Of “New Girl”, a shimmering guitar track that calls out rape culture, the pair said:
Misogyny and catcalling served as the impetus behind “New Girl.” There was one week where we were cat called probably 10 times; we felt fed up and wanted to write a song about men not respecting women’s boundaries, especially in public. We started working on the song during one of a couple sessions at Kevin Drew’s house. He has been a huge supporter of our music, and was awesome, giving suggestions and ideas but not wanting to take any credit because he’s such a great guy. He’s super supportive of young artists – especially young women – and wants to help us stay true to ourselves and our sound.
