ABOUT RICH GIRLS
Rich Girls is the solo project of Luisa Black (The Blacks). After the break-up of her SF/NY-based garage trio in 2010, Black was reluctant to assemble a new band. Instead she began work on a series of demos, writing and recording the full band instrumentation herself. Eventually she joined forces with engineer Sean Beresford to produce The One I Want , a collection of garage rock torch songs from the dark end of the street. Black’s enduring obsession with tone (“I’m always chasing the perfect reverb”), stripped down, elemental guitar and hard-hitting drums returns in Rich Girls’ debut EP. The One I Want takes the minimalist, garage-inspired instrumentation of The Blacks into dark pop territory with the addition of bass, piano and Black’s signature reverb-heavy vocal sound. The result is a pop confessional of love and addiction backed by tuneful, early-Cure inspired guitar lines. EP single “Sink Like Stones” offers an up-tempo embrace of self-destruction disguised as a summer pop song. To accompany the track, Black scripted a short horror film and teamed up with director Stokes McIntyre to produce it as a music video. The video was shot in San Francisco and featured a cast of local musicians and artists playing low-bottom rock and rollers. Video and EP were released on Tricycle Records in late 2013.

“Sink Like Stones nicely blends the gothic and the melodic.” -The Bay Bridged, Fourteen San Francisco Bands to Watch in 2014
“Jesus & Mary Chain inspired rock that filled the room with an epic amount of feedback and distortion, only to be grounded by the stunning vocals of Luisa Black [….] Rich Girls found the happy place where the singer is both drowning in and dominating over the distortion.” -Spinning Platters
