Girl Ray’s much anticipated third album, Prestige (Moshi Moshi), is a beautiful hybrid of two of my favourite bands, taking as it does the deadpan delivery of Luscious Jackson with the knowing jangle-disco of Orange Juice. Indeed, in what must be a nod to the former, the LP’s cover features Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell and Sophie Moss in pure 90s slacker attire, and looking for all the world like north London X-Girls.

Featuring the kind of ridiculously hooky-yet-enigmatic pop that is catnip to girls and boys for whom Kim Gordon, Kim Deal and Sofia Coppola are the holy triumvirate of alt-cool (one has to think Girl Ray will feature on a Coppola soundtrack at some point), Prestige also sounds incredible, all ‘lo-fi +’ analogue warmth – which is not surprising given that it was co-produced by the Grammy Award-winning Ben H. Allen (M.I.A, Gnarls Barkley, Christina Aguilera, Deerhunter). Third record's the charm, and Girl Ray are about to go big.
