After releasing their self-titled EP, Girlpool relocated to Philadelphia at the end of 2014 looking for change of pace and scenery. There they recorded their debut LP, Before The World Was Big, with Kyle Gilbride (of Swearin’. Engineer behind Waxahatchee’s Cerulean Salt, Radiator Hospital’s Torch song, etc).
