Fresh Track: Girls Names “The New Life”

Back in June, I featured Belfast’s Girls Names’ most recent single “A Troubled See” as a track worth your attention.  Late last week, the group released another single entitled “The New Life” which officially pushes their next album into my own personal “most anticipated” category.  Clocking in at 7:35, the single is a sprawling cacophony of reverb and dreary vocals to go along with a mesmerizing beat.  But despite its length and that description, there is plenty of great things going on here that are sure to translate even more into a live set.  Hopefully a lengthy tour including stops in the Midwest is in the works after the follow up to 2011’s Dead To Me is officially released.  You can preorder the 12” featuring this track and a J D Twitch Optimo remix from Slumberland Records.  Cheers and enjoy friends.

Fresh Track: Girls Names “A Troubled See”

Belfast’s Girls Names will be releasing their first single since last year’s debut LP Dead to Me. The b-side will feature a single from fellow Tough Love Records labelmate Weird Dreams.  The former trio and current quartet expands on their blend of reverb-heavy garage/surf/pop fun with “A Troubled See” by displaying more polished songwriting and arrangement.  Whereas several of the songs on Dead To Me drag to depressingly into psychedelia, this track features a bit more liveliness and enthusiasm.  Girls Names recently announced via Facebook that they will soon head into the studio to begin working on their sophomore LP.  Hopefully the group’s sound continues to develop and, with a bit of luck, we hear a new album before the end of the year.  Scope the track below and pre-order your limited edition (1/300) pressing.
