Brighton’s Lambrini Girls (Phoebe Lunny, guitar/vocals – she/they, Lilly Macieira, bass – she/they) have rapidly ascended the ranks of the UK music scene. From sharing the cover of Kerrang! with Sleater-Kinney to props from BBC Radio 1 and NME, to a nomination for Rolling Stone UK’s Rising Stars Award, and being Iggy Pop’s new favourite band.

Today they share new single ‘Body Of Mine’ ahead of a busy summer touring the US with Amy & The Sniffers, a string of festivals, their biggest headline show yet, and ending the year supporting IDLES at their sold-out London shows.

People label us as a 3chord riot grrl band and whilst I can understand why I don’t think our music sounds like other riot grrl bands. We do have punk elements in our music, but there’s other things going on. We’ve quite a noisy streak with poppier melodic aspects peppered throughout.

Lilly: We take inspirations from a spectrum of artists. Lilly takes a lot of inspiration from bands like Ditz and Gilla Band in how I use my equipment creatively.

We put lots of mayonnaise in the table and scream really loud until the frequencies make the table explode and then we record it
