Beyond the more post-punk and art-rock leaning world of his main project, Girls Names‘ frontman Cathal Cully has always had a strong interest in esoteric electronic sounds. Having recently finished up recording Girls Names’ forthcoming fourth studio album, Cully has announced news of his debut solo album as Group Zero, Structures and Light, a release written, recorded and mixed intermittently over the space of four years.
Set for release via Belfast’s Touch Sensitive records on Friday, February 24, Cully said of the release: “It was as an exercise in my own development and it was fun. It brought the naivety and spontaneity back to making music”.
The lead single from the album, ‘The Pummelling Repetition Inside’ is a bone-shaking dose of industrial-tinged electronica, whose stark instrumentalism and extricating patterns sum up the overarching aesthetic of Structures and Light as a whole. Keep those ears pricked for the full-length and dig Cully’s opening gambit below.
