Sonic distortion and slacker mist guaranteed, Girls Names are taking it live, and with rumour of material. With their previous efforts being lauded as a "love letter to European elegance", it will be well worth checking out their progression in this intimate setting.
It stands to reason that many vital albums come critically close to never being made. The eight-track upshot of doubt, upheaval and financial strain, Stains on Silence by Girls Names is one of them
Marked by the presence of drum machines and programming throughout, these eight masterfully woven tales are once again commandeered by founder Cully, whose words, understated yet defiant, mine purpose and meaning. But while Stains on Silence came critically close to never being made, having lived with it, reconfigured it, and guided its metamorphosis from flickers of inspiration and half-formed schemes, it’s both a statement of pure perseverance, and a head-on confrontation with ambivalence that couldn’t be more assured.
