Oslo trio Mall Girl have released new single "Super Lazy Girl" the latest taste of the their forthcoming new album Pure Love.

Of the new single, Bethany Forseth-Reichberg said: "Love: it’s really nice, and really scary. This song feels like a bridge between the sound of the young and the slightly older Mall Girl we are now. The song is in simple terms about (the oh-so-stupid & very-2023 term) 'situationships' - and in more complex terms about the fear of committing to something that feels real and more sustainable than hazy nights when you’ve lost your phone and possibly some of your integrity. So, when true love suddenly comes around, how do you know that you are ready for it? I don’t think you know, just have to jump into it and stop being a lazy girl."

Pure Love is the second album from the Oslo art-pop experimentalists, following the band's acclaimed 2022 debut full length Superstar.Through first breakups and dating through post-break-up pain and insecurities, the album finds the band proposing questions: “what do I believe in? Who do I want to become? and Where is my life headed?”.

Forseth-Reichberg adds: "I guess the album is like a break up album meets a Bildungsroman (is it like an episode of Girls? Maybe). Ironically, the “post-college-rock” sound could maybe go hand in hand with the post college experience I’ve had a go at writing about. I am glad we wrote this album and slightly (very) nervous to let people hear our take on Pure Love."

Pure Love is set for release on 26 January 2024 via Jansen Records.
