Girl Band have been off the radar for a couple of months, re-emerging today with the six-minute-plus ‘Lawman’. Both live and on record, the Dublin four piece have rarely been anything but exhilarating, and ‘Lawman’ is no exception. The intro is drawn out, the guitar, when it arrives, is stabbed with abandon and the vocals are mired in distortion and apathy: “He said how he’s being decisive now I’m not sure…” And things never let up from there. An amazing start to what is sure to be a massive year for Girl Band. ‘Lawman’ is released on Any Other City Records on limited-edition 7″, with each record screen printed on cotton duck fabric, hand stitched and numbered. You can buy the record here. The band are touring Ireland later this month and early in February – dates below.
