Hailing from the capitol of Florida, Girls on Film are an all-female 4-piece whose music is one part lipstick synth-pop and one part icy cold new wave. Their fashion fueled combination of high-energy stage antics and Dancetronic Glam Wave - their signature sound - have earned the band a reputation as one of the hottest new wave acts out of the Southeast. With their first release in 2003, the Love Robot EP, surrounding buzz stirs attention for the band and leads to radio & internet play, TV appearances and an in-demand stream of bookings and interviews. They play several prestigious music festivals in 2003-2004, including the Jacksonville International Connexion Music Festival, Cincinnati's Midpoint Music Festival, and NYC's M.E.A.N.Y. Fest. The Girls find themselves sharing the stage with the likes of legendary London rockers The Fixx, west coast new-wavers Glass Candy, MC Chris, The Bangs, VHS or Beta, The Start, Rasputina, the Impotent Sea Snakes, and MTV's Teck, among others. 2005 sees the release of the full length album Danceteria, which goes into radio rotation on WVFS 89.7 FM, X101.5 FM, GULF 104.1 (Tallahassee, FL), WAIF 88.3 FM & WLHS 89.9 FM (Cincinnati, OH), WTKS 104.1 FM (Orlando, FL), WSCA 106.1 FM (Portsmouth, NH), KTOO-FM (Juneau, AK), 2RDJ FM (Australia), CKUM Radio J 93.5 (Moncton, Canada), and numerous internet radio stations and pod casts. Increased requests for the band to appear take off with the release of the CD. An early 2006 tour to promote Danceteria takes the Girls to venues in Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte, Baltimore, Chapel Hill, and New York City, where they headline at the famous Knitting Factory Tap Bar and shoot the video for the single Vaporized under the supervision of director Dino Reyes. Production on the video is unforeseeably delayed until the end of the year. After being tapped by Manhattan label 2Asides Records to lend tracks from Danceteria for expert remixes by international top remix artists and DJs (such as Steve Porter, Hatiras, Thomas Penton, and Neil Kolo), edits from the resulting project Remix Reel immediately begin charting on Release Promo Only. The highly anticipated release of the Remix Reel double CD is originally scheduled for release in mid to late 2006, but numerous delays and financial issues keep the project indefinitely shelved. As the Girls' reputation grows, they continue to play a non-stop schedule of live shows from Charlotte to Atlanta to Miami. Despite the band's full performance schedule, travel, rehearsals, and busy personal lives in '06, the Girls manage to write nearly an album's worth of new material which is received by their audiences with enthusiastic demand for a second CD. The Girls record the Get Close to Me EP in the Spring of 2007, as they prepare for upcoming festival appearances and live concerts.
