Boomkat Product Review:
One of the most inventive, well produced, original and hard-hitting records of the year. There are echoes of The Fall, Can and Sonic Youth but wrapped in something new. F#cking bravo.
“In many ways the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the house.” And this enigmatic manor becomes Girl Band’s sonic playground: to place yourself within a space and to work with that space harmoniously. Dan continues, “We recorded all the drums twice: once on the landing and once in the cellar [The Well of Souls] and during production we could actually cut in between both these sounds.” ‘The Talkies’ vacillates between being big, ambient and atmospheric to suddenly terribly intimate and up close.
‘The Talkies’ is living, breathing, in a continual state of metamorphosis. It encompasses everything there is to love about Girl Band while simultaneously causing an exciting level of discomfort. The moaning and sawing guitars, atonal blankets of sound, abstractive lyrical repetition, chugging snare and ascending / descending snakes and ladders noiserock guitar deliver something that is so distinctively Girl Band. ‘Eregenis’: Album closes to steady breathing. It drips with catharsis, slow and mindful and purging over the familiar key and darkly syncopated grooves which closes the door to Girl Band’s sonic universe and brings ‘The Talkies’ to its first and final silence."
