After the overwhelming success of debut EP ‘You’re Welcome,’ Lambrini Girls are back with new single God’s Country via City Slang.

Originally from Brighton, the two piece are Phoebe Lunny (Vocals/Guitar – she/they) and Lilly Macieira (Bass – she/they) plus drummer Banksy*. They’ve made a name for themselves through unforgettable live performances and support from the likes of Variety Magazine, BBC Radio 1, NME, The Line Of Best Fit, KEXP, Consequence, Evening Standard, CLASH, So Young, and recently covered Kerrang! Magazine alongside Sleater-Kinney, bagged a nomination for Rolling Stone UK’s Rising Stars Award, and even Iggy Pop is a fan.

*Not actually Banksy

God’s Country was recorded by Gilla Band’s Daniel Fox in the deep dark days of December. They fuelled themselves with Christmas lights and Guinness until Lilly’s bass sounded like a jet engine taking off and Phoebe blew her voice out.

For the video, they filmed it themselves around London with friend Jessie Morgan and wanted to highlight how messed up everything is with contrasting statements i.e. filming outside Buckingham Palace with a statement about poverty in the UK. Watch the video for God’s Country or listen here

Speaking on the track, the band explain: “Gods Country is our long, overdue call-out of the government and rise of the far right. We wrote this a few months back, when the political landscape had evidently reached a global boiling point.

Great Britain. Think colonial, shit-hole, chunk of land. Thriving off unhinged nationalism, fed to us by the right red hand of unelected prime ministers. Despite this, we have the audacity to call our country ‘Great’. So we ask you, ‘Are you sure?’

We could deep dive into inspirations and influences- but the songs about politics, not us. We hope the song speaks for itself.

Rishi, Cameron, Cummings, Starmer – you’re all on our shit list.”
