Girl band have announced a second and final date in Vicar Street this November. The group recently returned with the single Shoulderblades and announced details of their second album “The Talkies” out September 27th,2019.
‘The Talkies’ was recorded in November 2018 at Ballintubbert House, a stately home on the outskirts of Dublin “a few pay grades above what we’re used to”. The alien construction of Ballintubbert and its corridors help to navigate Girl Band’s cataclysmic sound within a world of its own. “In many ways the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the house” says guitarist Alan Duggan.
“We recorded all the drums twice: once on the landing and once in the cellar, and during production we could actually cut in between both these sounds.” adds bassist Daniel Fox who produced the album. “After we cancelled the last tour we weren’t really writing together as much any more so we were more into demoing and writing down parts then cutting them up, collaging them together in the computer and reconfiguring them that way”.
Girl Band live at Vicar Street Saturday, 23rd November 2019. Tickets €30.00 inclusive booking fee – on sale Friday 14th June at 9AM
