Girls – Whelan’s, Dublin

GIRLS have announced a date in Whelan’s on Monday 1st March. Tickets are on sale from tomorrow, Friday 20 November, priced €16.50 inclusive of booking fee.

It’s rare to find something as true and beautiful as the band Girls. Christopher Owens and JR White were meant to find each other, sincere rock and roll soul mates in the age of irony. And while that might sound like fancy, it’s closer to the truth than you think.

Girls debut album, released earlier this year, is a music obsessive’s paradise, with references dotted all over the place. Listen carefully and you’ll pick up everything from Martin Denny-style exotica (Headache) to blissed-out shoegaze (Morning Light). You’ll hear the vocal stylings of Elvis Costello, the spaced-out fuzz of Spaceman 3 and cheeky pop references to the likes of Prince and Iggy. Like Girls themselves, the music is the sum of many fascinating parts.

Catch Girls live in Whelan’s on Monday 1st March. Tickets are on sale tomorrow from the following outlets.
