Video of the Moment #1361: Girls Names

By on Tuesday, 22nd October 2013 at 6:00 pm

Belfast’s Girls Names has a new video out for ‘The New Life’, the title track of a remix EP out next. I’ll let frontman Cathal Cully explain the vision behind the video:

The whole conception, development and recording for The New Life was as insular as it gets but once documented and released to the world at large I’m very much of the opinion that you should give the songs their own legs and see where they go. This is why we’ve been very open for visual collaboration with previous videos and artworks and with the forthcoming remixes which we shall be releasing. Having been a fan of Dan Tombs’ previous work we were more than happy to leave him to his own devices. The New Life now in this format is no longer so insular. Dan’s direction and video manipulation coupled with Sarah Lewis’ performance, marry the hypnotic repetitive riffs and drum beats to a perfect jittering, hypnotic visual identity of it’s [sic] own.

Watch the video below. The band begin a tour of the UK and Ireland starting tomorrow (the 23rd of October) at Manchester Night and Day.
