Album Preview: girlfriends – “girlfriends” Due Out Oct 23rd

Inspired by the pop punk they grew up on, Travis Mills and Nick Gross enlisted legendary producer John Feldmann for their debut as girlfriends.

Travis Mills tossed his hip hip sound to the side to explore a more accurate sonic portrait of his emotional catharsis and process his feelings while tapping into influences like blink-182, 5SOS, All Time Low, Phoenix, and The 1975.

“This record has been a long time coming,” shares Mills. “It encapsulates all of my teenage despair with a perspective I haven’t been able to articulate until these last 5 years. It’s an exercise in honesty, vulnerability, angst and excitement with nostalgia as the glue that holds it all together. This is my journal entry. This is my life. This is girlfriends.”

Travis enlisted his good friend, Nick Gross and before they knew it, they had practically written the debut album. Nick said, “All the worlds collided between what Feldmann was already doing with his production style and where Travis wanted to go musically,”Nick explains.“It’s been really cool and went really quickly.We wrote close to 20 songs in just a few months.”

girlfriends brings the spirit of pop punk back to the forefront of music and seamlessly weaves in pure power pop groundwork from early CashCash and Boys Like Girls to 5SOS. With the help of John Feldmann, the record is catchy AF and an instant classic.
