‘Holding Hands with Jamie,’ Girl Band’s debut album captures their chaos, turmoil, confusion and noise. Through every one of its nine songs you can feel the very primal grip of paranoia. The result is an album which is challenging, abrasive and brutal. And brilliant. From the metallic swagger of ‘Baloo’ through to the cathartic short blast of rage of ‘The Last Riddler’, it’s an intense gripping ride. It’s so singular and inventive it’s hard to make comparisons. You can say LCD Soundsystem, but they don’t really sound anything like them. Health, The Birthday Party. Krautrock, The Fall, they’re all touchpoints. But this is much more than that.
Live they add another layer of the above traits and take it up a level, and they are sure to give us of the most intense live shows in Field Day history.
We can’t wait.
