SXSW 2016 Interview: September Girls

By on Friday, 8th April 2016 at 11:00 am

By the Friday of SXSW 2016, as the hectic week was drawing to a close, my mind started to get a bit overwhelmed with the wide variety of music and musicians I was taking in. Near the end of Friday afternoon’s Full Irish Breakfast at B.D. Riley’s Irish Pub, I had the chance to interview a band I’d missed at SXSW 2014, Dublin garage pop act September Girls, but by that point, my memory was a bit foggy about when they’d previously appeared in Austin. Luckily, band members Paula Cullen (bass) and Sarah Grimes (drums) were able to set me straight in fairly short order when we stepped outside the pub for a quick chat in the middle of the Irish festivities.

September Girls’ appearance at SXSW 2014 had taken place shortly after the release of their first LP ‘Cursing the Sea’, and they made the long trek to Austin again this year ahead of their new album ‘Age of Indignation’, which is due out on the 8th of April via Fortuna POP! The band made the most of their time in Texas this year, often playing two or even three shows per day, as well as a handful of shows in Southern California before and after SXSW. While they didn’t have a lot of free time to spend on leisure activities in Austin, the five ladies in the band did manage to squeeze in one particularly memorable experience between gigs—have a listen to the audio stream below to find out about the “souvenirs” they obtained.

September Girls will play a list of headline dates in Ireland and the UK beginning on the 15th of April and extending through the middle of May, in support of their new album ‘Age of Indignation’. You can find a list of their upcoming live dates here on their official Facebook. Keep an eye on TGTF for a review of ‘Age of Indignation’ in the coming days.
