Dublin rockers Girl Band have returned with their blistering new cut "Going Norway", the second single to be lifted from their forthcoming album The Talkies.
"Going Norway" follows on from June's lead single "Shoulderblades".
Speaking about the new offering, vocalist Dara Kiely explains, ""Going Norway" was actually one of the first tracks we finished but the melody actually comes from a track that I wrote about eight years ago. I saved that melody and brought it up when I didn’t have any ideas left, I was also doing a lot of mindfulness meditation around the time of it, so lyrically I decided not to use any pronouns within "Going Norway" and the whole album - that came about when I came across this quote from the Buddha which was ’Nothing is to be clung to as I, me or mine’ - and I removed all that in a way to kind of find an abstract world to live in."
Girl Band's second LP The Talkies will arrive four years after their debut record Holding Hands With Jamie. It was recorded in November 2018 at Ballintubbert House outside of Dublin, and is produced by the band's bassist Daniel Fox.
Speaking about the record, guitarist Alan Duggan says, "In many ways the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the house."
