When two best friends start a band, songs get filled with inside jokes. Released last October, Gurr’s debut full-length In My Head took the listener on a journey of Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee's friendship, their life, and a step further into their own world.
Having met in an American Studies class in Berlin, and after spending time in the US together, the US West coast sound was an obvious influence on their music, but Andreya and Laura draw from a wide set of pop culture references and personal experiences for their debut album.
They call their sound ‘first wave gurrlcore’, and with a slight and acknowledging nod to riot grrl culture, they pair straightforward garage rock tunes with more psychedelic and wave elements. "We didn't start making music because of Kathleen Hanna," explains singer Andreya Casablanca. "Musically we were more influenced by bands like Echo & the Bunnymen, the B52s or classics like the Ramones and Beatles.”
