Girl Band‘s long awaited return was certainly worth the wait and it’s their new single Shoulderblades which is our latest Track Of The Week.
Shoulderblades will feature on The Talkies, the follow-up to 2015’s debut Holding Hands With Jamie, on September 27th, after recording sessions during November 2018 at Ballintubbert House, a stately home on the outskirts of Dublin. “In many ways the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the house,” Alan Duggan said, while Daniel Fox added:
“We recorded all the drums twice: once on the landing and once in the cellar, and during production we could actually cut in between both these sounds.”
“After we cancelled the last tour we weren’t really writing together as much anymore so we were more into demoing and writing down parts then cutting them up, collaging them together in the computer and reconfiguring them that way,” Fox, who also produced the record, continues.
