It’s been four years since Ireland’s Girl Band released new material. With evasive tones and jarring squeals, the Edinburgh band is back with a new album The Talkies due in September. The band’s latest single “Shoulderblades” is visceral in its sound, and the video is just as dark as you’d expect it to be.
The video is presented in a simple manner, yet the imagery is dark and at times disturbing. The song contains some of the band’s best work with guitars assaulting your senses with the vocals mixed up at the front of the track. Creating an intense soundscape, the band proves that they’ve upped their game since their debut without losing any of their sheen in the process. The screams, the dissonant drums and the searing guitars create a nightmarish world where Girl Band is running the show.
“Shoulderblades” can be streamed wherever you stream music and it can be purchased in all online music stores. The Talkies is available for pre-order directly from Rough Trade ahead of its September 27 release. Girl Band is set to tour starting October 02 in Chicago, IL at Beat Kitchen until November 22 in Dublin, Ireland at Vicar Street. The band’s tour schedule can be accessed here in its entirety.
