Biography

There are two bands named Girls Names:

1. A band from Northern Ireland
2. A grindcore band from Ontario, Canada

1. Formed in January 2009, Girls Names quickly garnered recognition outside of the confines of their hometown of Belfast with the release of their eponymous debut EP in 2010 through New York’s Captured Tracks. A mini album through London imprint Tough Love soon followed, setting the foundations for their critically acclaimed debut LP Dead To Me, released in April last year again by Tough Love in Europe and cult West Coast label Slumberland Records in the US.

After a successful tour of Europe in October last year supporting stand alone single Black Saturday, Girls Names began to hint at a possible directional shift away from their often misperceived surf and indie-pop roots. Indeed, the band have expanded to a four-piece and have spent the last six months in virtual seclusion honing and developing a more progressive and expansive sound, feeding on the darker sides of Echo and The Bunnymen, Spacemen 3, Krautrock, Psychedelia, post-punk and David Bowie’s Low.

2. Girls Names is 3 piece grindcore band from Ontario, Canada. Members include Shandra (vocals, lyrics), Emily (vocals, lyrics) and Adam (music, vocals, lyrics). They currently have 3 records downloadable for free on the Grindcore Karaoke label, which include an eponymous record, An Open Letter to Jay Randall and Dental Radiology.
