The Jealous Girlfriends


Holly Miranda met Alex Lipsen in 2004 and something clicked. At the time, Holly was playing solo, and Alex was used to being a producer who enjoyed long walks around his studio and talking a lot. Working in an intimate studio environment yielded much experimentation and enjoyment, which is obvious upon first listening to Comfortably Uncomfortable. This Scott Norton (Early Man, CoCo Rosie) engineered debut glimmers with songs about unrequited love, as Holly evokes Billie Holiday and even covers The Smiths. Read more on Last.fm

Wisely, they returned to their intimate studio atmosphere, tapping longtime collaborator Dan Long (Fatales, Kevin Devine) to produce. In the meantime, TJG's have developed a small but strong word-of-mouth following. With the new record complete, the world must embrace The Jealous Girlfriends. Witness clever melodies that float over harmonious and rhythmic epics like "Machines," recently mixed by Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs).

They have mined their influences for only the finest treasures, somehow conjuring up Edith Piaf on a Ouija board at Blur's house.
