OPOSSOM – ‘GIRL’ SINGLE
PHYSICAL RELEASE: 8/10 DIGITAL RELEASE: 7/10
Opossom releases new single Girl through Fire Records. Opossom is the brainchild of New Zealand based Kody Nielson, formerly of punk band The Mint Chicks. Girl is the second single to be taken from Opossom’s debut album Electric Hawaii and follows on from previous single Blue Meanies, which won support from Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw, 6 Music and XFM’s John Kennedy, Mary Anne Hobbs and Amazing Radio. Kody is joined on stage for live dates by singer and multi-instrumentalist Bic Runga and Michael Logie on bass. The album was written, recorded and mixed entirely by Kody himself at home, with help only from Howie Weinberg in the final mastering. Opossom will be touring throughout October/November including dates at London’s Shacklewell Arms on 29/10, Manchester’s Night & Day on 1/11. “Psych-pop noisemakers” – Pitchfork. www.opossommusic.com.
