The Jealous Girlfriends formed in 2004 and have slowly built a momentous pressure, playing shows at venues such as New York City’s Bowery Ballroom and featuring songs on Showtime’s The L Word, ABC's Grey's Anatomy, CBS' CSI Miami, and CBS' Shark. Billboard Magazine discovered this gem of a band in early 2006 and featured them with a write up full of praise. The Jealous Girlfriends were also featured on the cover of the Deli Magazine and most recently on the cover of The L Magazine's 2007 music issue, listed as one of NYC's top 8 bands to check out.
Their latest craft sparkles from every angle—boasting credits from Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s) and Dan Long (Kevin Devine, The Fatales). You can hear an inkling of influence from Sonic Youth to Billie Holiday, Blur to Edith Piaf, yet their sound is truly their own. You may not have heard of them yet, but The Jealous girlfriends are sure to become your next favorite band.

teen angst to songs from up-and-coming artists, and promoting these
artists through soundtracks and end-of-episode plugs. We can call this
genre of pop-rock "As Heard On." Innocuous, melodic, kinda dreamy,
kinda grungy, Neutrogena-clean synth, male/female vocals and
straightforward choruses that feel like home. The Jealous Girlfriends
are an unsigned four-piece from Brooklyn as heard on Grey's Anatomy,
The L Word, CSI: Miami and Shark, some legal drama on CBS that no one
but your dentist watches. Your dentist might dig the Jealous
Girlfriends, but so do Filter, The New York Times, those fickle kids
in Williamsburg and you. (Caralyn Green)

"Something In The Water" is a prime example, hearkening back to the best of the '90's. It's still a mystery to me, how this unsigned band has already managed a song on Showtime's The L-Word and another hugely popular Grey's Anatomy. Do not wirte them off because of that. After hearing any one or several of their smashing songs, you'll be cheering for their deserved ascension. A band that perfectly melds their influences into a set this mesmerizing is rare, and you can claim fandom early, before the big blow up.

They always seem to be playing somewhere in the city, and with every show, their following grows. They get better and better, with a sound that at one minute resembles Sonic Youth, and at another Fiona Apple, all along sounding like the product of a single band.
