Music: Cheap Girls

By Reyan Ali · November 10th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

When three guys heading toward their twenties formed Cheap Girls two and a half years ago, the project was intended to be something that they wouldn't take too seriously. Each of them had been in other groups before, and this one was supposed to have a good time without hitting the highways.

“We were going to be a party band,” recalls drummer Ben Graham.

One party quickly led to another and Cheap Girls quickly gained impressive momentum — so much that they reconsidered that original plan.

The Lansing, Mich.-based group — starring brothers Ben and Ian Graham (the latter handles bass and vocals) and guitarist Adam Aymor — turns out vibrant Power Pop/Pop-Punk with heavy ‘90s Alt/Indie Rock vibes.

My Roaring 20s, the band’s second full-length, was released last month. The disc has remarkably pristine production for a band creating this sort of music and indicates that Cheap Girls are serious about getting their material out there.

They play the Bikehaus with Failures' Union, Knife the Symphony and Army Coach. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
