It stands to reason that many vital albums come critically close to never being made. The eight-track upshot of doubt, upheaval and financial strain, Stains on Silence is one such release. But the stumbling blocks that proved a strain became the album’s defining breakthrough. The masterfully-woven tracks are both a statement of pure perseverance, and a head-on confrontation with ambivalence that couldn’t be more assured.
Girls Names are a four piece originally formed in Belfast, but they’ve long considered themselves a European band. Their high-end offer of post-punk, is rooted in Northern Irish grit and frustration, inspired by a dark romantic vision of further-flung cities.
Stains on Silence follows 2015’s blitzing Arms Around A Vision.
