The more we see and hear of Girl Band, the more intrigued we are by what’s on offer. The three tracks that have found their way online to date – Twelves, Second One and
Elastic – sound like the work of three totally different bands, which is always an interesting proposition.
Live, such waywardness works a treat with the band, formed from the ashes of former next big thing Harrows, following a very idiosyncratic star with elements of post-rock, fuzzy hardcore, strident punk rock, indie pop and 1990s shoegaze in the mix.
It’s early days to be sure, but they’ve already got the cut and shape of a band with real potential.
