Dublin's Girl Band makes their D.C. debut at the Byrd!
 
Girl Band are a 4 piece noise rock band from Dublin, Ireland. Their sophomore album “The Talkies” will be released through Rough Trade Records on September 27th, 2019. This is the follow up to their debut album “Holding Hands with Jamie” that came out four years ago almost to the day. “The Talkies” was recorded in November 2018 at Ballintubbert House, Ireland, a stately home on the outskirts of Dublin. The alien construction of Ballintubbert and its corridors help to navigate Girl Bands cataclysmic sound within a world of its own. Their live show has been described by The Guardian as feeling “genuinely dangerous, like one last rave before the apocalypse, and as perfect an expression of rock’n’roll’s essential auto-destructive impulse as this writer’s ever heard”.

Named by Paste Magazine as a DC band to know, Tosser released their self-titled debut EP back in November 2017 and they released a follow-up EP this summer called Lures. Led by vocalist Eric Zidar, the band’s new idiosyncratic effort shifts from melodic lo-fi rock to noisy shoegaze pop across its six tracks. The songs yearn with urgency, frankness and angst and the distortion nicely mimics the narrator’s often muddy predicament.
