Girl Band’s debut Holding Hands with Jamie is a bold and ambitious statement. Inventive, ferocious and relentless it’s as creative as it is abrasive. Their sound veers wildly from industrial shocks to math-rock repetition and it’s always arresting. Live they are a force of nature – lead singer Dara Kiely pulling at his top, screaming, while guitars howl around him. Eardrums rattled and brain suitably shattered, seeing them live is life-affirming.
