Lambrini Girls share tongue-in-cheek video for single White Van – a song about catcalling.

“This one goes out to all of the cis men with their d*ck out behind the wheel, screaming at us in the street without consequence. You’re an idiot and no one wants to f**k you”

Watch the video for White Van via YouTube below.

The T-shirt worn by the white van man was a second hand Lambretta T-shirt subverted to say “Lambrini” – created by designer Karthur. It was imagined to upset the character to see the juxtaposition of his favourite brand T-shirt, mashed up into Lambrini Girls merch.

Based in Brighton, Phoebe Lunny (Vocals/Guitar – she/they) and Lilly Macieira (Bass – she/they) 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. 

Debut EP ‘You’re Welcome’ is out May 19, 2023 via Big Scary Monsters, and contains previous single Help Me I’m Gay which Phoebe used to come out to her mum, as well as White Van, other tracks include Boys In The Band that’s about calling out abusers in the scene, and Terf Wars which is pretty simple – Transphobia has no place in feminism. Mr Lovebomb looks at altering behaviour in relationships, and ‘Lads lads lads’ is about toxic masculinity.

More about Lambrini Girls

Lambrini girls formed in the swamplands underneath Skegness Butlins, a scene filled with toxicity, a severe lack of accountability and not enough gravy. Flying the nest with a dream to curate slut vibes nationwide, they became the gayest band to ever win 50 consecutive Eurovision contests in a row.

Due to their massive success, they now all share a planet near earth in order for them to raise their 150 babies collectively (the father of which, is Lilly’s pedalboard) however, they do still practise in Brighton so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Lambrini Girls hotspots e.g your local skip or police station.

Inspiration is drawn from the likes of Savages, Le Tigre, The Spice Girls and unresolved trauma; not only do Lambrini Girls plan on setting your bin on fire – they want to create spaces at shows for anyone who feels like there isn’t a place for them there already. No one deserves to feel uncomfortable, no one deserves to feel invisible, start conversations with your mates, never let anyone stop you existing authentically and most importantly: Gays to the front.

A long time staple of the Brighton scene, in 2021 the release of their first singles brought the band’s sonic barrage to a whole new circuit of ears and culminated late last year in the release of their well-received single Help Me I’m Gay cementing their place as an unmissable new prospect in 2023 and with support from the likes of CLASH, NME, Kerrang! Magazine, So Young, Loudwire, BBC Radio 1, 5Live and BBC6 Music.

 Making a host of new fans with their incendiary live shows, the band have been announced for The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, and have also recently performed alongside the likes of Shame, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and Gilla Band.

Simply put, Lambrini Girls are here to take over the scene, one fizzy bottle at a time.
