Girls Names - Dead To Me 12"
Girls Names are a prototypical Slumberland band. Seemingly built out of Black Tambourine DNA, spliced into the Crystal Stilts, and then dumped in a reverb bath, the Irish trio fits perfectly both with the label’s history and resurgent present. That's not to say you’ll spend the entirety of their debut album, Dead to Me, playing spot the influence or wishing you were listening to one of the bands they are inspired by. The songs and performances are strong enough, melodic enough, and fun enough that you can enjoy the album for what it is: 30 minutes of noisy, hooky pop that sounds better every time you listen to it.
