God Help the Girl Trailer: “You’re Going to Need a Pop Group”

22 Jul

Time to take a TV intermission with the trailer and a song from God Help the Girl. Wistfully staring up at my ceiling instead of doing homework was a frequent activity while listening to Belle and Sebastian as daydreams are at the heart of their lyrics. Lead singer Stuart Murdoch expanded the Belle and Sebastian world in 2009 with a female vocalist group God Help the Girl and it is an album that has been on constant rotation (particularly when the weather warms up). It’s one of my favorites to dance around the living room to (and also makes for good writing/procrastinating music) and this film project by the same name is high up on the anticipated list.

God Help the Girl posterGod Help the Girl is a coming-of-age story set during a summer in Glasgow featuring three emotionally adrift musicians who form an indie-pop band together. Starring Emily Browning, Olly Alexander and Hannah Murray (Skins and Game of Thrones) it looks set to show a period in your life where possibilities are endless with dance and song. Plus there are so many cute dresses, capey goodness and knitwear aplenty in the trailer. Also be on the lookout for the full David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust makeup approach. Oh and for anyone who has read this, yes I have made it my new mission to find out the brand/shade that Emily Browning is wearing on the poster.

As a film/band this might fall into a “Too Twee” category for some, for me however this is optimal levels of charm and so I will be reaching for more nearest tea dress (which won’t be hard to find in my closet) when I see this film. For now I will be dancing around the confines of my house (which is best for anyone who has seen my clunky/awkward moves).

Listen to one of the tracks from the film below and God Help the Girl is released in the UK August 22 (with special screenings on the 16) and September in the US.

Update! And now there is a music video (via Stereogum). Yes I want that yellow dress. It is everything.
