September Girls - Cursing The Sea lp (Fortuna Pop)


“ "Ships" takes their fuzzy garage pop and colors it
several shades darker, resulting in an ominous amphetamine-fueled dirge
full of screeching guitars, metronomic basslines, and cooly detached
vocals. The Girls' pare down their sound to its steely core on "Ships",
using angular guitar work to sharpen their sunniest melodies to a
bleeding point, making this the most thrilling music they've released in
their short existence.” (Pitchfork) Cursing The Sea, the debut album
from Ireland’s September Girls, is a dark kaleidoscope of echoey drums,
buzzsaw bass, angular guitars and reverb-drenched vocals that blends
garage rock and post-punk to extraordinary effect. Paula (Bass/Vocals),
Caoimhe (Guitar/Vocals), Lauren (Keys/Vocals), Jessie (Guitar/Vocals)
and Sarah (Drums) draw inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The
Velvets, The Cure, MBV and The Jesus And Mary Chain and play
reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order. Formed in Dublin in 2011,
the band quickly began booking gigs in Ireland and the UK, before
releasing a handful of well-received limited edition singles on various
cassette and 7” labels around the world, most recently on the Haus of
PINS cassette label run by their kindred spirits PINS, with whom the
band have also toured. This release, for the song “Ships”, gave the band
their biggest press to date, with a glowing review on Pitchfork. With
four different songwriters and singers, each song begins with a secret
life of its own, only to be unified by the distortion-drenched harmonies
and hazy pop stylings of the band. Whirling around in a tornado of
fuzz, dazzling harmonies, disarming lyrics and dizzying excitement,
Cursing the Sea is awash with enough attitude and great songs to see
September Girls safely to shore. Huge amount of UK Press including NME,
Uncut, Sunday times, The Guardian, The Observer, Clash and many more. " - FORTUNA POP
