Dublin art-rock gurus Girl Band are set to release their second album ‘The Talkies’ in September on the legendary Rough Trade label.
To celebrate, Dara Kiely and the gang have announced two shows in Dublin’s Vicar Street in November.
The first is already sold out but there are still tickets available for the second show on Saturday November 23.
We have two tickets (yes, TWO) to give away for the Saturday night show – all you have to do is to tell us what your favourite song is by either an all-female band or a female-fronted band and why.
My pet octopus will choose the winner (…only squidding).
To whet your appetite, above is the band’s new video for ‘Shoulderblades’, which was directed by Bob Gallagher, shot in a studio in County Wicklow, and features a remarkable performance by dancer Oona Doherty, who is in sync with the intensity and claustrophobia of the music.
Imagine Black Swan soundtracked by The Fall instead of Tchaikovsky. But be warned: there will be blood.
