(Salinas, CA) – Rock trio Strawberry Girls, who have recently signed with Tragic Hero Records, has released their full-length album French Ghetto.
“We’re really excited to be teaming up with a label who truly appreciates what we’re trying to do with our music,” says guitarist Zac Garren. “We’re stoked for people to check out the new album art, our documentary “Jam”, and the bonus acoustic tracks we added for our re-release!”

It chronicles the formation of Strawberry Girls, their maiden tour, and is packed with the group’s eclectic sound.
About Strawberry Girls:
When an eclectic group of individuals comes together with an idea to create something fresh, the results can often be outstanding. Such is the case with the experimental rock trio Strawberry Girls. These guys from California (who could even make noise sound groovy) were founded by ex-Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Zachary Garren after he crossed paths with drummer Ben Rossett and bassist Ian Jennings. Although the band has worked with guest vocalists, they have remained an instrumental three piece. The album French Ghetto includes vocal appearances by Kurt Travis (A Lot Like Birds, ex Dance Gavin Dance), Nic Newsham (Gatsbys American Dream), Shane Smit, Kathleen Mae, and Gavin Mulkey. “Our sound was originally built from a desire to practice and play as much as possible, without being restricted by the schedules of many different band members,” says Garren. However, what originally began as an invention out of necessity, became much more than that. Strawberry Girls take a simplistic, yet sometimes technical approach to songwriting by mending parts together that get stuck in your head and compel you to listen to them over and over again.
