Girl Band released their debut album ‘Holding Hands With Jamie‘ last year – a prominent player in Live4ever’s Best Of…2015 lookback.

“It’s the lyrics, and the delivery of them, that appeal as much as the music. Difficult to parse amongst all the unceasing loudness, stream of consciousness-style sentences,” our review reads.

“Describing something as amorphous, as melodically slender, as Girl Band has its perils. They don’t quite fit into grunge, punk, goth or rock. And neither do they seem to appreciate being labelled (the Nirvana comparison irking most). Nor should they have to be given an identity.”

“But we’ll go on trying to and ‘Holding Hands With Jamie’ is possibly as new and fresh a noise as there is today. Girl Band: please carry on being intractable.”
