Becca Harvey is probably one of the few people on the planet who started a pandemic project and saw it through. In the Atlanta-based musician's case, it's her jangle-pop alias Girlpuppy, which found itself thriving after a COVID layoff. With more time to flesh out her songs, Harvey enlisted her friend Marshall Vore, an ongoing collaborator of Phoebe Bridgers', on production duties. Those sessions resulted in Swan, Girlpuppy's upcoming debut EP out August 20.
Today, you can hear "As Much As I Can," and its music video is premiering today on The FADER. Director Savanna Hughes films a singing Harvey in different locations including, perhaps most memorably, in a field while she wears a nightgown and wields a katana. Check it out above, and read Harvey's statement on the song below, followed by Girlpuppy's upcoming tour dates.
“This is a love song to the people in my life that make unconditional love the most difficult. I use the verses to recognize our differences, but also to recognize that we have a lot of shared experiences. I think a lot of it has to do with generational differences, the friction that it causes, and coming to terms with it.
"Lyrically, this is one of my favorite songs I've written. It was one of the first times that I wrote something in the moment and realized after the fact that it was exactly what I wanted to say. It's not meant to be hateful. It's honest and was my opportunity to exercise vulnerability. It's a love song.”
