Girls Names – “The New Life”

Belfast’s Girls Names traded in fairly on-the-nose post-punk – adjectives like “mournful”, “cold”, “dirgey” could equally apply to the vocals, guitars, drums, or synths – but when it clicked it evoked the best of the genre and they were at the top of their game on their 2013 album, The New Life. Their other albums have moments but don’t hang as solidly from front to back as on their second record. They disbanded in 2019 but left a going away gift last June in the form of the digital compilation Demos: 2009-2012.
