Girls frontman Christopher Owens has announced that he is leaving the band. As Pitchfork point out, Owens took to Twitter to make it public:
“Dear all, This may come as a surprise to many & has been an issue of much thought for me. My decision was not easy to make. I am leaving Girls. My reasons at this time are personal. I need to do this in order to progress. I will continue to write & record music. More will be announced soon. I thank you all for everything. Sincerely–Christopher”.
Girls were in Auckland back in January as part of the Laneway festival. They released two records, Album and Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
