SXSW Preview: Gal Pals

SXSW will be a nice homecoming for the duo of Jillian Talley and Lauren Mikus aka Gal Pals. The two moved from Austin to LA some time ago and since have formed a band whose sunny blistering rock sound perfectly epitomizes a lot of the successful bands that have come out of the West Coast in recent times. I call it ‘the Burger Record sound’, even though Gal Pals is not on that label, I think.

What is it about these bands? Why do they have such a good time? I guess it’s wonderful to be sunny and warm outside every single day. Gal Pals just released their new album Velvet Rut earlier this year so look for that to get some attention at their SXSW show case.
