Philadelphia-based have shared their new single Just Like You. The song is lifted from the band’s forthcoming EP ‘Home’ out September 7 via Chatterbot Records. Take a listen to the single via Soundcloud below.

About the song Church Girl’s Mariel Beaumont says, “Just Like You is about falling for someone who over-indulges in all your bad habits — you want to get swept away, but you know it could lead you down a dark path. I wrote it with my friend Molly Martin in Nashville – it was my first and only co-writing session and it was a blast. The rest of the band was psyched about the initial demo and helped turn it into a super fun song that we all love playing live.” Home was recorded with Scott Solter (Spoon, Superchunk), follows up Church Girls’ critically acclaimed album ‘Hidalgo’ and is available to pre-order now at Bandcamp. Church Girls have also announced a tour date support of the upcoming release. All upcoming shows are listed below.

Formed in 2014 in Philadelphia by Mariel Beaumont, Church Girls is an indie / post-punk group on a quest to tap into listeners’ emotional marrow and explore the ways we work to become better humans a little at a time. Their 2018 single Young Planes premiered on PopMatters, who described it as a “restless, urgent piece that fuses the fire and burning punk zeal of early Sleater-Kinney with the post-millennial anxieties and indie melodies of Angel Olsen.”
