Local ladies, Von Iva bring the party to you on this EP with an equal
amount of sass and class. Girls on Film is a Glammy pop EP with soulful vocals
that pops like indie-bubble gum and you can dance to it. Expect a crisp production,
simple melodies and a lot of head nodders. The fundamental groove
is what keeps this trio in the pocket and it works. Jillian Ivas soulful vocals aren't
too rough or too soft so she finds a balance that doesn't turn your ear south.
Becky Kupersmith compliments well with the keyboards that don't drown
out the songs or sound too light. Kelly Harris on drums bangs steady to keep
that groove and the drums are EQ'd well. Over all it's a solid EP so put it on and
turn it past 11!

1. Keyboard and vocal intro before the big beat comes in and BANGS, nice hi-hat work too.
2. Bass line played on the keyboard that sounds very NEW WAVY
3. Static kind of Boom Bap groove
4. The synthesized dynamics, tambourine jangly, catchy
5. Bubbly bounce that breaks down slow new wave jam
