Irish post-punk outfit Girls Names are back with their first new material since their sublime 2013 LP, The Next Life.
The Belfast quartet’s latest offering, entitled ‘Zero Triptych’; is a spectacular and engrossing eleven-minute return. The whirring post-punk feel of The New Life remains central to their approach, as it opens with an eerie sense of foreboding before settling into it’s spiralling guitar work. Ushered onward by a propulsive rhythm as it blasts through meticulously crafted swells of guitar, electronic fuzz and atmospheric vocals. ‘Zero Triptych’ is an utterly sensational return from Girls Names and not too dissimilar to Toy at the peak of their prowess. Mere words don’t do it justice. Nothing yet of a new album but ‘Zero Triptych’ is released on 12-inch vinyl on May 11th via Tough Love.
