Stream: Girl Band – De Bom Bom


Having inveigled with their seven-minute debut single, ‘Lawman’, back in January, Dublin noise rock quartet Girl Band have unveiled its equally inexorable successor, ‘De Bom Bom’.

A potent and propulsive effort – positively not created with the airwaves in mind – it is wonderfully severe, spleen-stretching throwdown, clouded in fuzz and driven by a rabid, demented rhythm. Accompanied by a cover of Beat Happening’s ‘I Love You’, the track will see a limited edition 500-run 7-inch, released via Any Other City.

With a string of dates with Metz and Slint on the horizon, Girl Band will support the latter pioneers at Belfast’s on August 18. Go here to buy tickets.
