We’ve chosen and talked about her before in one of our Music Discovery pieces, and for a reason. We were expecting great things from girli, and today, we have the proof that we were right. With her new release, London-based singer and songwriter girli confirmed our expectations. The artist dropped “Cheap Love,” and it’s the bop we needed.
The British musician was set to be one of the most influential artists in the British pop and pop punk scene. Her new single, “Cheap Love,” is the corroboration of the artist’s future.
Discover with us the British artist and her unique sound.
Born Amelia Toomey, girli is an English singer and songwriter based in London. Since her music debut in 2015 with the single “So You Think You Can F**k With Me Do Ya,” the artist developed a pop and pop punk infused sound, with influences from vapourware and PC music. Very personal and unique, the artist developed a strong, distinctive lyricism discussing, among other themes, feminism, sexuality, queer culture, and mental health. The singer’s first album arrived in 2019, when girli dropped Odd One Out with PMR Records. Girli was however later dropped by her label. This and the COVID-19 pandemic forced her to cancel her 2020 Sofa Tour. She then started working with the independent label AllPoints.
With AllPoints, the singer dropped her three latest singles: “I Really F**ked It Up,” “Imposter Syndrome,” and, of course, “Cheap Love.”
The single narrates the beauty of the simplest form of love. Between “bottle in a bag with a plastic tag we could open” and getting high “on a low budget love like we’re rich,” the song is an ode to girli’s love for pure, genuine, easy, and “cheap” love.
