Track Of The Day: Girls Names – ’25’

Having just announced the release of their fourth album, Belfast’s Girls Names make a welcome return after a hiatus from music following 2015’s Arms Around A Vision. Recorded in various locations, including Belfast’s esteemed Start Together Studio, Stains Of Silence looks set to be a defiant, and immersive, come back for the band.

Taken from the album, new single ’25’ is a brooding, shoegaze-reminiscent sonic delight. Filled with sweeping, reverb strewn layers of synth-heavy sound and the dark, swooning vocals of Cathal Cully, it oozes a twinkling, ethereal haze alongside eerie undertones. An intensely captivating offering, it’ll have you hooked on first listen, and desperate to hear the album in full.

Stains On Silence, the fourth LP from Girls Names, is out 15th June via Tough Love Records.
