Opening the year with a flurry of fantastic shows, Dublin group September Girls lit up the opening weeks of 2014 with their debut album.
Released on Fortuna POP! the self-titled LP was a blur of chainsaw guitars, girl group harmonies and emerging Krautrock influences, all bundled into deliciously evil pop songs.
New EP ‘Veneer’ continues this progression, with fans swooning at September Girls’ dark visions. ‘Black Oil’ has gained a bewitching video – here’s Paula Cullen to explain more about the song...
"The imagery in the lyrics came from a couple of places, the first being a dream I had, the second being some crazy stuff I had written down on Christmas night last after a few drinks. The meaning of the lyrics "if I could swim, I'd be dead by now" is about acceptance of ones own limitations and the realisation that perhaps sometimes your perceived shortcomings can be the thing that saves you."
Watch it now.
