Firstly, Girl Band does not contain any girls. They are a four piece in their late teens / early 20's from Dublin, wet behind the ears, and they play music that does not fit comfortably under one genre. Somewhere between Pissed Jeans, !!!, Modern Lovers, Shellac and Liars, they somehow sound like all and none of those at all. Ask them their influences and they'll tell you "Daft Punk".
Live they are a wall of noise. Disparate and desperate in equal measure. Their music is all sinew and wires, burgeoning excitement, in their heads as much for the dance floors as it is for punk dives.
"Lawman" will be released on limited 7", on cotton duck fabric, hand stitched and hand numbered up to 300.
