September Girls play reverb-soaked noise combining razorwire guitar, thudding Moe Tucker beats & girl group melodicism. Their debut album 'Cursing the Sea' released in 2014, garnered widespread critical praise. They followed up with an EP of greater depth and polish later that year. In the intervening months the band have been busy on the road, playing across the UK & Ireland as well as festivals like SXSW & CMJ. They are currently in the studio recording album 2, due for release in early 2016.

Biography

September Girls play reverb soaked noise of the finest order, with distant layered harmonies, swirling organ and distorted guitars. Their debut album 'Cursing the Sea' released in January 2014 garnered widespread coverage from the likes of NME, The Guardian, Uncut and The Observer, with The Sunday Times declaring it to be "a debut album that succeeds not only because of the colouring and songwriting, but because of the utter confidence in their method". Time Magazine named them as one of the 11 best new bands in the world and 'Cursing the Sea' was included in Rough Trade shops 100 Best Albums of 2014. 

In November 2014, September Girls released a 4 track EP 'Veneer'. Whilst still retaining their signature drenched feedback sound the tracks have a greater depth and polish than the album recordings. "Veneer finds the Irish quintet throwing off the 60s girl-group coyness in favour of something fiercer. Embittered and angry definitely suits September Girls" - NME 

In the intervening months September Girls have been busy on the road, playing SXSW and CMJ in the US, UK festivals such as Beacons, The Great Escape & Liverpool Psych Fest and a UK tour supporting A Place To Bury Strangers. The band are currently in the studio recording the follow up to 'Cursing the Sea', due for release early 2016.
