Girl Nobody


Vancouver's Girl Nobody formed in 1999 and has since become one of the few bands that can offer cerebral charm and sexual bravado within a lullaby of pop swoon, all the while continually stretching musical parameters. The band's stunning live shows, along with their critically acclaimed self-released debut album The Future Isn't What It Used To Be (2004), proved that the hype Girl Nobody had been generating was warranted.

Vancouver's Girl Nobody formed in 1999 and has since become one of the few bands that can offer cerebral charm and sexual bravado within a lullaby of pop swoon, all the while continually stretching musical parameters. The band's stunning live shows, along with their critically acclaimed self-released debut album The Future Isn't What It Used To Be (2004), proved that the hype Girl Nobody had been generating was warranted. Girl Nobody's true strength is their sheer unpredictability. Their live performance has been described as anything from an eerie Berlin cabaret, electro-pop meets The Who, to adventurous music that sounds more inspired by Kurt Weill than modern pop.Marta Jaciubek-McKeever, with her intoxicating voice and stage presence, effortlessly glides through songs spinning tales of alienation and aliens one minute, firing off political rants the next. All the while the rest of the band (Joey Turco, Jimmy Northey, Jeremiah Schneider) provides huge helpings of sophistication and flair, switching instruments from song to song. Girl Nobody's sophomore album Balaclava Casino Heist (due out in the fall of 2007) is an exploration of the band's identity.

As in the spirit of their debut, here the band further expands the bounds of genres and refuses to be confined by them. Produced by Futcher (The Be Good Tanya's), Balaclava is propelled by driving trip-hop and dub beats supporting the ever-present Rhodes piano, Moog and compelling electric guitars. The band's innovative song-writing offers fresh variations on the classic structures of pop songs, ballads and dance numbers. Girl Nobody's main objective for their sophomore album was to bring the focus back to the band as a unit. The most striking departure from their debut is found in the vocals.

The band's dashing, almost defiant harmonies lead by Joey Turco, Jimmy Northey and Jeremiah Schneider shine through the entire album. In fact, it is the bassist Jeremiah Schneider who shares lead vocal honors with Marta Jaciubek-McKeever. Even though most of the album still showcases Marta's vibrant vocals, the rest of the band's strong presence throughout the album is a refreshing change of direction for Girl Nobody. During the release of The Future Girl Nobody teamed up with Toronto's vinyl label Release Records to remix their entire album by various djs, including New York based Delicate Impostor (Bjork) and Lemon8. The latter remix of Cages was also released on Paul Oakenfold's most recent album "Cream Fields". 2004 saw the five members of Girl Nobody through two Canadian tours and countless TV appearances.

Their live performance on CBC's ZeD TV was released on the show's best of album, which also included such notable acts as Sam Roberts and BUCK 65, as well as Cinematic Orchestra. Girl Nobody's music has also been placed in TV shows, such as The L Word, Nickelodeon's Radio Free Roscoe, as well as many independent film projects. Girl Nobody have also produced three music videos: Cages directed by Vancouver's Darcy Van Poelgeest, Aliens by Montreal's NuFilm, and Let You Down which was directed by Rose M. Pietrovito from Dzinenmotion. Read more on Last.fm.
