September Girls

Cursing The Sea

Fortuna Pop

Street: 01.06

September Girls = The Shirelles + a synthesizer

This full-length debut album is a DIY-style reverb mash-up of ’60s girl groups and ’80s New Wave, and comes from Dublin noise pop group September Girls. With a slew of releases in the last two years, including six singles, The Bangles–inspired, all-girl band recently got signed to Fortuna Pop (specializing in the dreamscape reverb stylings of this Irish band) September Girls use rich vocal harmonies with guitar interplay and loud drums to record an honest sound that can be reproduced live. The album is a stark contrast to my beloved Dead Boys and the like, but when my whiskey-soaked liver just needs a break, this band is a great way to lull your poor decisions to Neverland. –Joshua Allam
