A Boston native turned California Girl, Colleen Green subscribes to the Ramones’ grungy lessons and adds to them the laissez-faire cool of modern California stoner pop. With songs about the little things—dancing with your friends or wanting boys to like you—Green explores the ways one tries to get rid of heartache. She’s a sad songwriter, without a doubt, and the upbeat, clapping drumbeats and simple chord progressions only facilitate her cathartic tales of loneliness. On past releases, Green has covered everyone from Blink-182 to NoBunny to get her feelings across. “I just love songs with catchy melodies and sad-sack lyrics,” she says.Green’s live show is a lesson in being the coolest girl in school—she stands stark still, alone on stage (save for sometimes a drummer), her face half-obscured by bangs and sunglasses, and sings her songs without many flourishes. Green describes herself as “wicked lazy and poor,” but exudes that I-couldn’t-possibly-give-less-of-a-fuck vibe more than anything else. To celebrate the release of the limited-edition Cujo EP, she will embark on a tour supporting Dum Dum Girls and Crocodiles in October.
