Video of the Moment #1891: Girls Names

By on Friday, 28th August 2015 at 6:00 pm

Belfast’s Girls Names are gearing up to release their next album, ‘Arms Around a Vision’, on the 2nd of October on Tough Love Records. Their unique brand of post-punk enjoys a good following but chafes against current conventions in rock. So it makes perfect sense that for their new video for ‘A Hunger Artist’ from the upcoming LP, they’ve taken the concept of the discomfort of a telly interview between a sullen, taciturn rock star (the band’s own frontman Cathal Cully, now sporting bleached blonde hair) and a journalist without a clue and turned it into the basis for a music video. I can’t help but listen to this song and think how John Hughes probably would have taken it and put it in a film for today’s Brat Pack… Watch the promo below.
