More about:

'Who's Ur Girl' is the latest cut from Scouse trio The Mysterines. The boisterous new song is inspired by David Lynch's Blue Velvet and is quite as inviting and adrenaline-spiking as the film. The young band are for fans of now-disbanded Welsh group Estrons.

'Who's Ur Girl' barrels along in a storm of fuzzy guitar and punk-inspired vocals from singer and guitarist Lia Metcalfe, whose live capabilities come through loud and clear on the lean cut. Any extraneous elements are stripped away from the energetic, mosh-pit-inducing tune for a short, sharp shock of garage punk. Listen:

Metcalfe's confrontational vocals evoke images of her stalking the stage while drums beat mercilessly in the background and guitars thrash.

The trio released their debut EP Take Control earlier this year, and their hometown show at Jimmy's Liverpool next month sold out three months in advance.
