UNDER THE RADAR: Rich Girls – “Loaded”.
Rich Girls combines the polish of British art rock with the primitive energy of American garage.
Rich Girls started as the solo project of Luisa Black (The Blacks) during a lonely year in London. After the break-up of her SF/NY-based garage trio, Black decamped to England looking for a new start. She started work on a series of dark pop demos, writing and recording the full band instrumentation herself. Black called the project Rich Girls, an attempt to disguise the fact that it was a lonely solo venture.
