Girl Band, Electric Ballroom, London - 5th November 2019

Girl Band defy categorisation; described by some as 'post punk' are neither post nor pre anything I've every heard before; four most seemingly unassuming guys sort of wander between their own left and right brain synapses yet manage to come together to pump something out from the middle, neither here nor there but right through you. Vocals distil Joycean lyrics through a Pollock paintwork as affecting as the sadly shortlived Joy Division sets I was blessed to have beheld in my lifetime. Stunning and stunning.

Following their sold out three nights Whelans residency in March 2022, Gilla Band (formally known as Girl Band) will return to the live circuit this December 2022.
They will perform their biggest headline show to date in National Stadium, Dublin 9th December and Empire, Belfast 15th December 2022.

Gilla Band burst onto the scene in 2015 with their debut album Holding Hands with Jamie, stunning audiences with their furious, confrontational, visceral noise and singer Dara Kiely’s cleverly meandering screeds. The record won universal acclaim from outlets such as NPR, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NME, SPIN, Mojo, The Guardian and many more. Following a two-year hiatus, the group came together in late 2018 to record their follow-up, The Talkies, at Ballintubbert House, a stately manor on the outskirts of Dublin. The Talkies was released in Sept 2019, again to huge acclaim leading Billboard to comment,

“A sophomore album as raucous, pile-driving, Dadaist and primal as we’ve come to expect from the Dublin outfit”, and NME to write,

“They’ve outdone themselves this time”. September 2020 saw the release of a blistering live album, ‘Live At Vicar Street’, which captured the group’s phenomenal live.
