With their new album The Talkies coming later this month, Ireland four piece Girl Band is set to have a pretty epic end of 2019. After their last release was celebrated, the intriguing nature of their music alone means that the searing tones that fall all over their new single “Salmon Of Knowledge” shouldn’t shock you by any means.
The song slowly builds like people whispering in a hushed room. When the vocals come in they’re done so in sparse stabs, elemental yet not flowing in any sort of way. With feedback cutting in like a bad habit, the song gets darker and darker as it unfolds with strange noises creeping into the background. The searing tones of noise alone make the song have a different approach while the anguish that looms throughout is masterful and disturbing at times.
“Salmon Of Knowledge” can be streamed above or on YouTube, it can be purchased in all digital outlets and The Talkies can be pre-ordered on multiple formats directly from Rough Trade ahead of its September 27 release. Girl Band is on tour starting October 02 in Chicago, IL at Beat Kitchen until November 23 in Dublin, Ireland at Vicar Street. The band’s complete tour schedule can be accessed here.
