Belfast’sGirls Names have revealed details of their third studio album ‘Arms Around A Vision’ due for release October 2nd via Tough Love Records. Fuelled by a passion for music and influenced by visions of Europe, the fourpiece have pieced together a twelve track album filled with multi-paced masterpieces, drawing inspirations from the sleazey sound of Eno-era Roxy Music and noise drenched soundscape of The Birthday Party. Lyrics are often abstract, instruments are frequently unfamiliar (Sheets of metal and hammers anyone?) and energy is always hard-hitting as is the auduable excitement for stretching musicality filling every song.
Along with details of the album the Northern Irish band have also unveiled the first single to be taken from it. ‘Reticence’ storms from the opening layers of angst ridden guitars peeled back into a stomping groove as shimeering electronics guide the track back into one last epic breath of noise. A four minute long education in songwriting guaranteed to leave you gasping for more, which luckily we’ve been ensured is coming in October.
