Check out the new Lawman single from ironically named noise rockers, Girl Band. Here at ChiIL Live Shows, we've been liking what we've heard from these Dublin based boys.
The band is influenced by a mix of 70s post punk, 80s hardcore punk, with textures and song structures influenced by techno acts. Their live show is known for being loud, intense and energetic.

"Second One is a fantastic blast of punky fury and righteous energy." -THE IRISH TIMES
"This is maniacal music, the kind that translates onto its listener and turns them into a more rabid individual. Watch out." -THIS IS FAKE DIY
"musically somewhere between bleach-era nirvana, mclusky, jesus lizard and even that incendiary first idlewild demo in their teens, long before they started sounding like rem. this a band listening to the same bands as metz have been listening to, but living a lot closer to home.' a must." -ROUGH TRADE
"A succinct, vicious little slab of noise-pop genius that expertly blends texture, dissonance, and squealing, searing feedback with tight dynamism and an infectious hook; think 'Song 2' by Blur if they'd been paying homage to noise-rock, rather than parodying grunge." -DROWNED IN SOUND
"Goddamn this is ace." -THE QUIETUS
"Taken from the ingeniously-named France ‘98 EP, ‘You’re A Dog’ is the perfect introduction to fearless neo-grungers Girl Band, on the off-chance that you haven’t yet heard the masterful noise rock these four Dubliners produce." -HOT PRESS
