Since 2016 the girls have also been releasing their own original material. Their 2017 debut album ‘First World Problems’ and 2016 EP ‘You Asked For It’ are out now via their website and iTunes etc along with their latest release ‘Acoustic Problems’ released February 2019!

The band, more widely know as the world’s most popular female tribute to iconic punk pioneers The Ramones.

‘First World Problems’ blends raw, dirty punk riffs with melodic vocal/guitar lines alongside punk screams and a good helping of gang vocals.

Oozing the intensity, power and energy of a live ‘76 Ramones set, ‘First World Problems’ also encompasses many of the girls wider musical influences with hints of early B-52’s, The Cramps, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Runaways, Descendents and Mötorhead. The album also draws influences from 90’s rock, grunge, pop and the girl’s more recent contemporaries.

In a world where the ideals of punk remain relevant, the girl’s self-penned tunes are their own take on growing up in the noughties era, tales from the road and living as the social media generation.

With 14 blistering tracks lasting less than 30 minutes there’s no room for fillers on this loud, fast and powerful debut, which also includes an appearance from punk legend Charlie Harper on harmonica.
