“Power” is the best word to describe Texas-based rock band Not Ur Girlfrenz. The group consists of three powerhouse musicians, is known for its powerful musicality, and is the definition of girl power.
In anticipation of Not Ur Girlfrenz’s debut EP, New Kids In America, Fuzzable looks to introduce readers to this promising new band.
Only in their early teens, Not Ur Girlfrenz is made up of lead singer and guitarist, Liv Haynes (13); bassist and backing vocalist, Gigi Haynes (12); and drummer, Maren Alford (14). Despite being young and an all-girl group, both continuous obstacles for many looking to enter the music industry, Not Ur Girlfrenz have worked hard to reach early success. This year alone, the trio opened for Bowling for Soup during their spring tour, as well as played select dates on the final cross-country run of Vans Warped Tour. They even made history as Warped’s youngest touring band in its 24 years. Kevin Lyman, founder of Warped, declared Not Ur Girlfrenz “the future of women in rock, or just rock in general.”
At the time of writing, Not Ur Girlfrenz has put out two original songs with accompanying music videos. “Never Stop” was released earlier this year and tells the story of an unhealthy friendship. Newly released song, “Warped,” is accompanied by a music video filled with videos taken during the band’s days at Warped Tour. Cameos by other touring bands, including Waterparks, Simple Plan, and The Maine, can be spotted throughout. In addition to this, the group has occasionally released covers, such as The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love” and Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries” (accompanied by a full concert band!)
The band’s debut EP, New Kids In America, will be released on November 16 and can currently be pre-ordered on their website. Based on the strong work of Not Ur Girlfrenz so far in their career, the EP looks to be a promising release that Fuzzable looks forward to hearing.
