September Girls announce US album release + play SXSW

September Girls

The debut album by September Girls, ‘Cursing The Sea’ will be released in the US on March 11, 2014 via Fortuna POP! on CD, LP or DL. The band will also play at SXSW to promote the release of their album. September Girls are a Dublin-based five-piece who play reverb-soaked noise-pop, with layered harmonies, swirling organ and distorted guitars once described as “sounds from a transistor radio abandoned in a rural cinema.”

About the album: First single Heartbeats is a tale of unrequited love and betrayal, awash with fuzzy guitars, ethereal female vocals and entrancing melodies and underpinned by a hurt that catches the back of your throat, while the remarkable pop song that is Green Eyed has the protagonist trapped in a relationship with someone untrustworthy. Elsewhere Sister deals with the thorny subject of rape and victim-blaming in society over an insistent, urgent backing.

Title track Cursing the Sea is an ode to long distance heartache and an apt title for the album, with many of the songs dealing with distance, insecurity and inner turmoil, and alluding to an overall sense of being adrift. In keeping with this, the band chose the setting of a beach at night for the artwork, hoping to capture that same unsettled feeling.
