Samiam is a punk band from Berkeley, CA.
Philly four-piece Church Girls write propulsive melodies and achingly vulnerable lyrics wrapped in the throbbing anxiety of post-punk and joyous aggression of pop-punk. Formed in 2014 by Mariel Beaumont, the group has toured extensively across the US, UK, Canada, & Europe and been featured at Audiotree, KEXP, Stereogum, Bandcamp New & Notable and more.
With their 2021 LP Still Blooms, Church Girls crafted their most emotionally affecting album yet– devastating and desperate in one moment, ebullient and sanguine the next, and yet overcoming any and all obstacles to become a cohesive, succinctly catchy and uplifting statement of purpose.
They’ll be touring on their new EP Nightmare Nights, out in October 2023.
