Bio

Whether jamming together on their family farm in the Adelaide Hills, playing alongside Arcade Fire and Catfish & the Bottlemen at the Isle of Wight festival, or opening UK stadium shows for Little Mix, it’s their mutual connection to music that has seen sisters Georgia (guitar, keys), Ella (bass, electric cello) and Clara Germein (drums) make their mark in music while staying under the radar… until now.

The indie pop trio ‘Germein’ are making a statement with their bold new single ‘Good For A Girl’ which they wrote, recorded, and produced themselves in their home studio. ‘Good For A Girl’ touches on the siblings’ personal challenges they’ve faced being an all-female band in today’s music industry.

Clara laughs, “I went into a music shop to buy drumsticks, and the guy behind the desk asked me if I was buying them for my boyfriend”. Georgia recalls the band’s first soundcheck on a national tour when “It was as if we’d surprised the sound guy when we started playing, like he expected us to be bad. At the end of the show he said to us that we were actually pretty good for girls”. “We wanted to write a song that would help tackle these stereotypes, and give a voice to anyone who might be going through a similar experience” says Ella. “It’s about giving girls an equal playing field, and not discriminating based on gender” Clara adds.

The band were scheduled to kick off their UK/Europe Tour as of March 2020, but like many touring artists, they became grounded once Covid hit. As a result, they refocused much of time and energy into crafting new music in their family home amidst lockdown, and so ‘Good For A Girl’ was born.

The song’s powerful lyrics are blended with the raw combination of edgy guitar hooks, quirky piano lines, and rhythmic vocal percussion – topped off with haunting sibling harmonies.

“There’s definitely something empowering about writing, recording, and producing your own music – especially doing it as a family. We hope that we can be an encouragement to other artists out there who want to do the same” says Georgia.

Germein also wrote, recorded, and produced their debut single ‘Talking’, which was launched on Triple J Home and Hosed. “The energy put into this song has paid off - with style, plenty of sass, edgy guitars, & a soaring chorus shows off a range of influences. Their tight harmonies show off how perfectly their voices work together & prove that they have musical finesse to be reckoned with” Line of Best Fit (UK)

Nice to hear new Germein on the Unearthed timeline! This one's got their usual pop smarts, Haim-y touches and a lot of heart.

A wonderful introduction that showcases many of the influences you've listed. You can tell you're sisters just from these harmonies
