Take A Trip to Acid Island

Acid Island is the first single from the album debut by Danish singer/songwriter Mikala Nørgaard under her moniker GØRL: A dark, enchanted summer tune with secret-agent-wise chords and a slight dub feeling. Mikalas catchy voice adds to the overall spooky atmosphere; while the chorus establishes an almost Bowie-like feeling with its uplifting melody.

Acid Island may not be typical for the rest of the album, but for GØRL it's one of their favs to play live. If you ever happen to be on board of a plane together with Mikala, our vicious flight attendant: Expect your flight to not going your planned itinerary...

Here's more about Mikala Nørgaard, the viking lady behind GØRL:

The Wild World of the Weird GØRL

When a 12 year old girl stuffs socks down her trousers in order to pass as a male rock singer in the school band, you could say there is a certain type of determination at play. It also shows that even in her younger years, Mikala Nørgaard had fun both celebrating as well as destroying male rock clichés - even when it meant that any hope of a romantic reputation in her teens disappeared. Socks down her leggings and 1.85 metres tall? Mikala was soon made aware that most boys ran away - even the tough ones.
Now, a fair number of years later, Mikala’s band GØRL still plays with clichés. For her first album, the singer, guitarist and songwriter put together a wild collection of theatrical tracks and psychedelic melodies. Her voice is constantly mistaken for that of a man, which comes as no surprise, as her idols are mainly male. Add to this a touch of Nordic humour, which seems to be ingrained in the native Danish character. Her constant companion is a beer horn, since just like all Vikings, she loves the brew like no other. And just to top it all off, her project is called GØRL. It couldn’t be less girly! Hard to spell as well, what with that Danish letter.

She draws her musical inspiration from decades of rock and pop music; many of her much loved early idols have already gone to Valhalla, or whatever the Vikings call it. Glam Rock and Psychedelic Rock live on in GØRL - possibly with some role reversals, as well as being compiled differently to how its forebearers might have initially intended. With these songs in her bag and her beer horn in hand, GØRL can begin her journey to what could be seen as new shores, with absolute confidence.
