Ahead of their debut album 'Earl Grey' - out August 4 throughMoshi Moshi - North London trio Girl Ray share brand new single 'Don't Go Back At Ten'.
The track, a song about the enduring bonds of friendship, was recorded with their friend (and now touring guitarist) Mike O'Malley at Ramsgate's Big Jelly studios.
Says vocalist/guitarist Poppy Hankin of 'Don't Go Back At Ten': “After a break-up I was super low, and as clichéd and teen-movie as it sounds, it was truly my friends who got me through it, making sure that I didn't just mope about the whole time eating pots of cottage cheese and crying. I guess I wrote this one to cheer myself up in a way. Not many of the songs on the album are happy but this one is, kinda!”

Following their storming headline set at Glastonbury last weekend, everyone's favourite stadium rockers Foo Fighters have now announced a show at London's 02 Arena on September 19.
The show will celebrate the venue's 10th birthday, and for the Foo Fighters represents something of an intimate gig and might just be the closest you ever get to Saint Grohl and co., considering they're normally more used to spraying their sizeable riffs over 90,000 people in stadiums. So make sure your're ready with your finger on the buy key, as tickets are already available for 02 priority customers and general sale is from 4pm today (June 28) by clicking here.
This latest news from the Foos' camp follows details of their ninth studio album 'Concrete and Gold' which is to be released on September 15 via Columbia Records, and their own one-off festival, Cal Jam 17.
The event will take place on October 7 at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, California, and will see the band headline their biggest one day festival alongside a line-up which includes Queens of the Stone Age, Liam Gallagher, The Kills, Wolf Alice and Royal Blood. After going back to their grunge roots on the fabulously filthy yet singalong single 'Run', fan excitement for the new record is building and these unique shows will only increase the hype.

Essex five-piece Courts have already got the likes of Zane Lowe, Nile Rodgers and Elton John onside with their upbeat signature funk pop sound, and now to partner single 'True Say' they reveal the Harry Barber-directed video.
The band filmed the video in their hometown of Basildon, and features friends they grew up with, and explores places from their past.
“We think the video sums up what we're about perfectly. 'True Say' took a little while to write and was one of those awkward tracks that didn't work first time round. It started as another song initially, but was stripped back to the original chord progression and a completely new song was born from it. It's about Chris' [vocalist, Chris Moody] life experiences from childhood until now.”
Courts' debut EP, 'Back of the Mind', is out now on Kitsuné.
