Belfast four piece Girls Names are set to release their new album 'The New Life' through Tough Love on February 18th.
Girls Names are a band out of place. An indie pop band straight out of the Sarah Records handbook, the band perhaps more in keeping with the current Brooklyn school than most of their British contemporaries.
Recently sharing a split seven inch single with Weird Dreams, Girls Names confirmed that they were working on a new album. Now the Belfast group have broken cover, announcing the release of 'The New Life' through Tough Love on February 18th.
Produced by singer and songwriter, Cathal Cully, the new material is seemingly darker then their debut album with Girls Names possessing a psychedelic edge. Cully explains:
“'The New Life' is not an over night change for Girls Names - just over two years in fact. Dead to Me literally was dead to us by the time it was committed to wax. But it's a learning curve. We started moving on as artists the moment we finished that recording session, maybe even before. Not to dwell on the past, 'The New Life' is what happens when you reset everything back to zero and start again, but try to perfect. It starts back at zero the minute the needle hits the groove but we're also starting back from zero once the needle lifts at the end of the record. Ad infinitum. 'The New Life' is what follows now.”
