Here, then, is the new material about which Girls' Christopher Owens warned us: A more shiny, polished, but still damaged-as-hell take on vintage pop, aka "Heartbreaker." It's the first song from Broken Dreams Club, a new six-song EP from Girls due November 22.

Six songs, 30 minutes, due November 22
The out-of-nowhere breakthrough band performed this song in its first headlining show at the Fillmore a couple weeks back; it sounded good then, and it sounds good now. With a chord progression that could have been taken from half the songs on Album, but production quality that far exceeds anything on the band's debut, Owens is right when he said this tune could earn radio play. Sure, Owens' voice still sounds a lot like early Elvis Costello, and the haters will still hate his arguably overwrought delivery and maudlin attitude. They're just missing out -- this is beautiful. Check out "Heartbreaker" here.
