The Dublin four-piece noise band performed in the U.S. for the first time earlier this year, where their bicoastal and SXSW debuts cemented their reputation for frenetically captivating live shows that preceded them (It’s hard to overstate how heart-stopping it is to see these four guys from Dublin play live, but I’ll say they make it sound like the whole world is going to literally explode in a massive, interstellar ball of fire. It’s the end of everything and they’re both indifferent and full of rage – NPR).

Watch the video for Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage? via YouTube below, which is lifted from ‘The Early Years’ EP.

Girl Band’s first widely available EP, ‘The Early Years,’ is out now via Rough Trade. The EP is a collection of singles previously released as 7”s that were available only through the band’s merch tables and mail-order.
