For about two years, Girls Names have been tight-lipped about their obvious metamorphosis on their sophomore LP, The New Life. By the time Dead To Me was released, the Belfast quartet had moved on from the quick mash-up post rock tracks that permeated their debut to an intangible world where the grim existence in Northern Ireland was the only grounding force. On The New Life, echoes of Ian Curtis, Bowie’s Low, and krautrock amalgamate for a one hyper-hypnotic trip.
The New Life will be officially released on March 12 via Slumberland in US. You can stream the entire album below today:
