Based in Brighton, Lambrini Girls are Phoebe Lunny (Vocals/Guitar – she/they) and Lilly Macieira (Bass – she/they) who have a strong artistic bond over their creative common ground – hot button societal issues combined with a biting, tongue in cheek lyrical style all their own.
They’ve been included in the NME 100 as well as gaining attention from BBC Radio 1, So Young, Brooklyn Vegan, CLASH, BBC6 Music, Variety Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Rolling Stone UK, Kerrang! Magazine, Rough Trade – the list goes on.
Following their debut EP ‘You’re Welcome’ released earlier this year via Big Scary Monsters, Lambrini Girls share an important video for ‘Boys In The Band’, with a touch of their tongue-in-cheek humour.
Speaking of the track, the pair said, “We’ve been planning the release of this music video for a while and the recent events in the media just confirmed its relevance further. Our song, Boys in the Band- is about SA and abuse in the music scene. The recent influx of conversations of abuse culture, comes down to another bombshell revelation in pop culture when another celebrity turns out to be a nonce. However, we need to be shouting about this constantly. Opening conversations about abuse culture is appropriate, all the time because this happens, all the time.“

They add, “We made [the video] the day after we got back from playing a festival. We were totally destroyed and just raw dogged the whole thing. We tried to invite a crowd of people down to Green Door Store where we were filming the video and only 5 people turned up. The idea behind one of the scenes was to depict invisibility by playing in the middle of an indifferent “crowd”. We had a makeshift green screen, some venue toilets and our guitars. Lilly had food poisoning and was trying not to throw up the whole time. Phoebe’s trousers were ripped from behind. We made this video with Bristol director Harry Steel.”
