GIRLS OF THE INTERNET – ‘I DON’T WANNA LOSE YOU’
FT. OLIVIA LOUISE
Girls Of The Internet have been on an unstoppable trajectory over the last few years, with their brand of future facing house and soul music. They now step into the new decade with ‘I Don’t Wanna Lose You’ ft. Olivia Louise, the first single taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Girls FM’ out on their own Drab Queen imprint. The album will follow the Girls Of The Internet signature sound and individuality, with the singles artwork featuring a newly painted piece for all nine signatures by Girls Of The Internet’s writer and producer, Tom Kerridge.
“The new album as a whole, pushes the role of Girls of the Internet ‘the band’ even further than we did with “SYRUP”. I have grown up around sampled music, and I love it dearly, but how much longer can we keep pinching loops from 70’s soul and disco records? We play every rhodes piano, every bass guitar, we write our own songs. I want to see house music moving into the future, and that seems difficult if we’re still sampling the same records they did in the 90’s.”

2019 saw them release their debut album ‘SYRUP’, to universal acclaim. Achieving the accolade of being included in BBC Radio 6’s ‘Albums Of The Year’ List, further radio support came from esteemed broadcasters such as Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs, Tom Ravenscroft, Mista Jam, Nemone, Lauren Laverne and Toddla T. Playing at iconic venues around Europe, Girls Of The Internet has earned key stamps of approval across the board from The Black Madonna, Basement Jaxx, Claptone, Axel Boman, Nightmares On Wax, Joe Goddard, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Saoirse, Mark Broom and Horse Meat Disco.
After fielding offers from a variety of record labels, Girls’ have decided to keep hold of their independence and the rights to their music, joining a long list of successful artists who are taking on the music industry on their own terms.
“I was very keen to work with Olivia again – she delivered the standout cut on our debut, and aside from “When U Go”, it’s the track we get most attention from. Our mix of techno/disco with her breathy R&B is so interesting to me, and a concept we are continuing through “Girls FM”.”

Setting the scene of what’s to come, ‘I Don’t Wanna Lose You’ sees the band take the conventions of disco and house and propel it into the future. Featuring vocalist Olivia Louise, who appeared on one of the standout tracks from 2019’s, ‘SYRUP’; Olivia delivers her trademark smooth RnB vocals over Girls’ disco bass, saturated analogue chords and thumping drum machines. Girls Of The Internet deliberately blur the lines between electronic and live music. In a world of sampling others, Girls proudly create their own sounds.
