Indie88 Premiere: Girlfriend Material drop lyric video for new track ‘Stay in Touch’

Their forthcoming album 'Cool Car' is set for release on July 12

Toronto four-piece Girlfriend Material, which features Tokyo Police Club’s Graham Wright and Josh Hook and Hollerado’s Jake Boyd, have released a lyric video for their new track, “Stay In Touch.”

“Stay In Touch” is a gritty, guitar-driven track with quirky lyricism like, “It’s so good to see you again/ I know I always say ‘Let’s Stay In Touch’/ But this time let’s really stay in touch.” The accompanying lyric video features a model of the vehicle from the Cool Car album cover driving through a snowy cardboard town.

“I originally wrote this one for the first Girlfriend Material Christmas EP, as my therapist hastens to remind me every November, is a very loaded time of the year, which makes it perfect to write songs about,” band member Graham Wright explains to Indie88. “I think my writing aim generally boils down to trying to extract the maximum amount of emotion from the smallest and most mundane scenarios, and rarely do little moments feel more pregnant with meaning than when you’re back in your hometown for the holidays.”

Watch the video for “Stay In Touch” below.

Girlfriend Material’s forthcoming album Cool Car is set for release on July 12th via Dine Alone Records. You can also check out their new tunes at their album release gig with Deanna Petcoff, Knifey, and Lenny Bull on July 19th. Purchase tickets here.
