GKB’s debut EP came out in 2021, and now Kirgo is back at it, with 4 1/2 minutes of sparkly guitar goodness on the playfully titled single, “Yom Petty.” It’s a tasty morsel for fans of Teenage Fanclub.
Kirgo made the song at Chad Carlisle’s garage studio in Montebello when he was house-sitting. “It was great,” Kirgo says. “Just me, a couple dogs and a 15-year-old cat named Nicholby. I’d wake up, get coffee and head out back to the studio. … ‘Yom Petty’ developed quickly. I always have the songs fully fleshed out before I start tracking, but this one in what seemed like a matter of hours was just fully all there (except for the riff guitars, those drove me insane). It’s one of a few I tracked while I was there. I had that moment of clarity where I was just like, ‘this has to be the first one I put out.’” Marshall Gallagher (Teenage Wrist) did the mix.
