Welcome September Girls! We are psyched to be releasing a new September Girls EP on November 24th - in stores for Black Friday - 12" vinyl and digital release. New tunes, new photos and videos coming up!
2014 is definitely shaping up to be a year of triumph for Dublin-based noise pop quintet September Girls. Starting off the year incredibly strong, they signed to UK based Fortuna Pop! in January to release their first full length album Cursing the Sea. Filled with driving drums, doom-filled fuzz guitars and perfect monochrome vocal harmonies, the album delivered on all the hype from their well-received late 2013 single, “Heartbeats”. After the album's release, September Girls began enjoying a newfound recognition and popularity in the UK. The band's signing to Brooklyn-based label Kanine Records will undoubtedly grant September Girls the opportunity to further expose American listeners to their brand of dark-hearted rock.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The Velvet Underground, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus And Mary Chain, the five-piece play reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order, with distant layered harmonies, swirling organ and distorted guitar described by Nylon as “dark, moody and pretty damn cool.” Cursing the Sea garnered widespread coverage, with a Guardian New Band of the Day piece, NME radar and 8/10 review and a 4* review in The Fly as well as coverage in The Sunday Times, The Observer and Uncut. The Financial Times said that they were “like a less malevolent Jesus and Mary Chain – impressive power, conjuring exactly the right balance between noise and sweetness” while Time Magazine called them the newest addition to Dublin’s rich musical history.
