Yorkshire's Post War Glamour Girls have built up a huge reputation over the past year following the release of their acclaimed and outstanding album 'Pink Fur'. Now the four-piece are set to swiftly return with a brand new single 'Gustave / Lolong', released through the Too Pure label on September 1st.
Reminiscent of The Birthday Party with vocals evocative of Nick Cave crossed with Frank Black (if they both hailed from Leeds), the four-piece have spent the past two years building up an impressive body of work, showcasing an innate knack for creating intricately layered and intelligent compositions with an almost theatrical Arcade Fire-like build up.
And while the mainstream has noticed, with the band already receiving heavy support from Clash, DIY, The 405, The Line Of Best Fit, and being invited to perform on the NME/BBC Radio 1 stages at the Reading and Leeds festivals, it's the incredible amount of underground fan-driven support that has marked Post War Glamour Girls out as a major band to watch.
Last year also saw the band perform a series of shows at the likes of Live at Leeds and Long Division, tour supports with both PINS and I Like Trains, as well as performing to over 800 people at Leeds University Stylus.
The four-piece released their expansive and epic ten-track debut album, 'Pink Fur', this February. Recorded in break-neck speed with Lee Smith and Jamie Lockhart (The Cribs, Forward Russia) at Greenmount Studios, the new album has been winning widespread praise since its release.
Post War Glamour Girls continue their rise with a new single 'Gustave / Lolong', released through Too Pure on limited edition crocodile green vinyl on September 1st 2014.
