Girl Band

Four years on from their startlingly superb debut, Holding Hands With Jamie, the Dublin 4-piece, returned this year with The Talkies, a record as gloriously writhing, challenging and explosive as its predecessor. It’s a shapeshifting, snarling and startling record with discordant shards of guitar, intense, dissonant grooves, and  frontman Dara Kiely’s absurdist wordplay perfectly coalescing it all. It’s difficult to believe, but live it is even more intensely charged, electric and cacophonous, with a force so powerful that it will nearly knock you over (to clarify, we mean this in a very good way).
