New Hope Club are kicking off their new era with the release of ‘Girl Who Does Both’ and ‘Getting Better’, out via Island Records UK. Listen HERE!
The single – written and performed by Blake, George and Reece – showcases the band’s extraordinary musical evolution. The songs also mark Blake’s debut as a producer, developed under the band’s mentorship with multi-platinum, award-winning US producer and songwriter Ross Golan (5 Seconds of Summer, Maroon 5).
Harking back to the contrasting A-side/B-side dynamics of the past, the delicate Simon & Garfunkel-leaning ballad ‘Girl Who Does Both’ shows off the band’s acoustic side while ‘Getting Better’ is an exuberant retro-tinged disco-pop song.

New Hope Club said: “It has been six years since we formed the band and we have grown together and become experienced musicians and writers by working with amazing people around the world. We felt that it was time to take this project by the scruff of the neck and guide our own path. We wanted to have full reigns over every decision. Writing during a pandemic had an effect on us, we felt that we needed to spread some light and positivity in a time where it was pretty hard to find.”
‘Girl Who Does Both’ hears them celebrating every side of their girl’s personality, amid the boys’ trademark, soaring harmonies while the catchy ‘Getting Better’ is a perfect primer for summer and the slice of pop escapism the world needs right now. Reflecting the trio’s cheeky and carefree outlook and manifesting positivity, they sing, “Good days are coming, coming my way… Life’s getting better”.
Having written and performed together since their teens – and all still only 22-years old – New Hope Club is starting a new chapter with greater clarity on their creative purpose.
