Ã¢â‚¬ËœHolding Hands With JamieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Girl BandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s debut album, comes a few years into their tenure; a few years after their first tour; nine days crammed into a Fiat Panda; a few years of stamping 7Ã¢â‚¬Â sleeves to sell at merch tables and mailorder; a few years of writing songs and touring and developing a live ferocity unmatched by nearly anyone.
Recorded in April 2015, two days after returning home from their first-ever US tour, the nine tracks making up Ã¢â‚¬ËœHolding Hands With JamieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ capture, more than any previous recordings, the tension and abrasive energy of a Girl Band performance.
This young Dublin foursome are creating vital, propulsive, and almost terrifyingly energetic noise rock that pulls as much influence from classic techno as from their more obvious post-punk, noise and industrial predecessors.
