"...there’s a clear trajectory, and while Girl Band don’t exactly find peace, they excel here in this erratic calm."
"...the Irish punk quartet channel pure, visceral panic through screeching sensory assaults and scrap-metal clang."
"...the songs, finessing the band’s noise-rock through a filter of techno and glam, are sensational."

Girl Band release new album The Talkies,  follow-up album to their ground breaking 2015 debut ‘Holding Hands with Jamie’. It was recorded in November 2018 at Ballintubbert House, Ireland, “a few pay grades above what we're used to!”, the alien construction of Ballintubbert and its corridors helped to navigate Girl Band’s cataclysmic sound within a world of its own.

The Band say - “In many ways the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the house". And the enigmatic manor became Girl Band’s sonic playground. The Talkies is living, breathing, in a continual state of metamorphosis. It encompasses everything there is to love about Girl Band, while simultaneously causing an exciting level of discomfort. The moaning and sawing guitars, atonal blankets of sound, abstractive lyrical repetition, chugging snare and ascending/descending snakes and ladders noise-rock guitar deliver something that is so distinctively Girl Band.
