VINYL FORMAT. Formed in January 2009, Girls Names quickly garnered recognition outside the confines of their hometown Belfast with the release of their eponymous debut EP in 2010 on New York's Captured Tracks. A mini-album through London imprint Tough Love soon followed, setting the foundations for their critically acclaimed debut LP Dead to Me, released in April 2011, again by Tough Love in Europe and Slumberland Records in the US. October 2011 brought the excellent "Black Saturday" single, a frisky slice of dark, driving pop, and earlier this year the band released "A Troubled See" as one side of a split 7- inch with Weird Dreams, a track that startled with its stark precision.

Hinting at a new direction, Girls Names are in the process of finishing their boldest and most exciting record to date —their sophomore album and the follow-up to Dead to Me. New single "The New Life" clocks in at over seven minutes and puts to music the feelings of a band living and working in economy- stricken Northern Ireland—the perfect soundtrack of the bleakness in which they exist. The B-side is a mesmerizing, dubbed-out JD Twitch Optimo remix.
