Today, the Los Angeles duo Girlpool, comprised of Harmony Tividad (she/her) and Cleo Tucker (he/him), has shared the full stream for their highly anticipated new album, What Chaos Is Imaginary via NPR First Listen, who are calling it "a meditative and expansive album that showcases Girlpool's restless desire for growth... What has remained at the heart of Girlpool's music is Tucker and Tividad's shared resolve to simultaneously revel in and make sense of the chaos of being alive."

PRAISE FOR WHAT CHAOS IS IMAGINARY:

"Girlpool's full-band transformation has illuminated its raw sound in deep and unexpected ways." -

NPR

"The gravitas in their voice accompanies a newly embodied confidence; where Tucker once sang tentatively, now they sound rooted and sure. Their lyrics remain in the present tense, but their delivery

suggests a retrospective candor, an indexing of past selves in order to make room for the self that's still becoming." -Pitchfork

"One of the greatest modern day indie rock bands." -

Jezebel

"Extremely promising... shows the band continuing to evolve into a richly layered indie rock project." -

Stereogum

"'Lucy's' and 'Where You Sink,'; the two singles that Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker released last month, both hinted at the fact that Girlpool were growing into their status as a vivid, incisive rock band, but 'Hire' is the best of the lot. Cleo's voice is rich and raspy, particularly in its upper reaches, and there's even a serpentine guitar solo at the end. It's really good, and you should listen to it" -

Noisey

"Ever-evolving as songwriters has led to each album being a snapshot of a band in the midst of evolution, and What Chaos Is Imaginary is Girlpool's biggest leap yet." -Consequence of Sound
