Girl Band are a four piece noise rock band from Dublin, Ireland. They are made up of Dara Kiely, Alan Duggan, Daniel Fox and Adam Faulkner .
Girl Band formed in late 2011 with influences ranging from bands such as Bad Brains, James Chance and the Contortions, Neu and The Chemical Brothers. With their first string of demo releases, Girl Band attracted the attention of Irish music Journalists such as Jim Carroll of The Ticket, The Irish Times and many Irish DJ’s such as Dan Hegarty, 2FM. They released their debut single “In My Head” with Any Other City Records (Villagers, James Vincent McMorrow).Their live show is known for being loud, intense and energetic. “France 98”, a 6 track release with Any Other City Record, was released in February 2013. Their new single “Lawman” is being released with Any Other City Records on a limited run of 300 7″ records, each screen printed and hand stitched.
“This is maniacal music, the kind that translates onto its listener and turns them into a more rabid individual. Watch out.”
THIS IS FAKE DIY
“musically somewhere between bleach-era nirvana, mclusky, jesus lizard and even that incendiary first idlewild demo in their teens, long before they started sounding like rem. this a band listening to the same bands as metz have been listening to, but living a lot closer to home.’ a must.”
“A succinct, vicious little slab of noise-pop genius that expertly blends texture, dissonance, and squealing, searing feedback with tight dynamism and an infectious hook; think ‘Song 2’ by Blur if they’d been paying homage to noise-rock, rather than parodying grunge.”
DROWNED IN SOUND
“Goddamn this is ace.”
Strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
