About Girlpuppy & ‘Miniature Furniture’
With an opening tour with The Districts already scheduled for October and her first live performance at Chicago’s Riot Fest, girlpuppy’s return with “Miniature Furniture” showcases her effortless confessional indie folk, earnestly examining her own emotions and writing beautifully forlorn pop songs that pierce straight through the heart.
Harvey explains, “This song is a culmination of experiences from a summer where I was traveling back and forth to Chicago and Pasadena all whilst coping with a difficult break up. I was having a really tough time dealing with the breakup, but instead of addressing the feelings I was experiencing, I distracted myself with travel and spent time with friends. I often find myself trying to hide from confronting my emotions head on by doing things to keep myself from thinking about how sad I am, so this upbeat song really embodies the fleeting feelings of happiness while also being so depressed.”
“I associate great memories with this song because I wrote it with two of my friends Grace Repasky and Maggie Geeslin (of Lunar Vacation) and it was such a fun experience. The “miniature furniture” title is a reference to an exhibit at The Art Institute of Chicago that I visited during that summer.”
Becca Harvey was working as a cashier at an East Atlanta bakery when the coronavirus pandemic forced her out of work. With an abundance of idle time, she set about finishing the music she had begun writing under the moniker girlpuppy a year earlier, and by the middle of May, “For You” — a breezy, soft-focus love song she wrote with her multi-instrumentalist boyfriend — found its way onto playlists and into the ears of thousands of listeners.
It didn’t take long for Harvey, only a few months shy of 22, to follow up on her success. A breakup shortly after “For You”’s release unleashed a font of new music: downcast, lovelorn songs aided by production from Marshall Vore, a close friend of Harvey’s and collaborator of fellow emo-folk darling Phoebe Bridgers. The new music, written during one whirlwind pandemic summer with the same vivid, Swift-ian lyricism that helped launch “For You” into relevance, will make up Harvey’s forthcoming EP, titled Swan.
Harvey was born in Kennesaw, Georgia, the third of three children in a military family. She developed an interest in music-making while still in elementary school, carrying around a journal where she mustered imitations of Hannah Montana and Taylor Swift. In high school, she sang her songs over looping chords and posted the tracks to bandcamp, but the music caught little steam. It wasn’t until For You that she found an audience outside of friends and family. Within the span of a year — and with the help of a talented cadre of musical friends — Harvey has pulled together six songs and released two of them: “Cheerleader” and “For You”. The music caught the attention of small online music publications, and earned her a record deal with Toronto’s Royal Mountain Records.
Because her star has risen during a global pandemic, Harvey has yet to play a live show, but vaccinations have set an end date on this lull: In September, Harvey will tour with Pennsylvania rock group The Districts. In September, she’ll play Chicago’s RiotFest. Swan will release on August 20th.
girlpuppy’s Swan EP is due out August 20th. It is available for preorder HERE.
