在网络上看到很多乐迷对女生摇滚的偏见，觉得在如今遍地都是各种乐队的今天，一只纯女子的摇滚乐队想要生存更不容易。Vivian Girls就是其中一只，她是一只由3个女生组成的来自布鲁克林的Lo-Fi,Noise Pop乐队。
今年早些时候她们公布第三张专辑有著名厂牌Polyvinyl发行的新闻并提供了其中I heard you say的免费下载。队长Cassie Ramone描述这张专辑是她们的一个成长，是一种新的尝试，这张专辑有更多的迷幻成分，而少了点钉鞋的味道。另外小八卦下乐队成员的频繁异动，最早的主力成员Frankie Rose在2008年离开了乐队并且在去年和不同音乐人发行了名为Frankie Rose And The Outs的专辑，她也加入过Dum Dum Girls和Crystal Stilts。之后Ali Koehler短暂的代替了Frankie的位置，但之后她也离开了乐队并加入现在声名大噪的Best Coast，她的位置由名为Fiona的姑娘代替。而成员Katy Goodman有众多的project，一个是与Cat Power的Gregg Foreman组成的名为All Saints Day是side-project，另一个是今年的solo-project名为La Sera，而Cassie也有一个名为The Babies的side-project。
Vivian Girls never drifted far from the music scene between their self-titled debut and their less-hyped followup, Everything Falls Apart. This tradition continues to hold true now as the time-frame of their third album is announced.
Besides seeming to always be on tour, the indie-punks all have their hands in enough other projects to start their own label, but more on their label situation in a minute. Extra-Vivian activities, in fact, claimed a casualty in drummer Ali Koehler, who now claims Best Coast as her sole gig. But still, with lead singer Cassie Ramone playing with The Babies and releasing an album in November (not to mention a solo record called Zenith in early 2011) and Kickball Katy working on side-project All Saint’s Day and new solo project La Sera, which will also have a release in early 2011, the ladies understand the importance of now and are taking advantage of all the potentially temporary opportunities the spotlight can offer.
And thus, with so many side-projects in active stages, it’s mystifying that the Vivian Girls found time to write and begin recording their third effort, titled Share The Joy, which is now scheduled to see a release in Spring 2011 on their brand-new home, Polyvinyl. This puts them in the company of Japandroids (potentially awesome tour alert!) and of Montreal (potentially awkward tour alert!) and will probably cause a change in the amount of support they receive for Share The Joy’s release, one of the benefits of being on a major indie. As for the drummer situation, well, they even found time to solve that problem and now have one in Fiona Campbell (via Pitchfork).
As stated, recording is not even finished yet, but the band members are all on the side-project kick until the end of the year. I know it seems like a long time, but you’ll be bouncing around or creepily staring at a Vivian Girls show in no time.
