Girl Band – “Lawman” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / January 21, 2014

The young Dublin quartet Girl Band plays noisy, cymbal-crashing post-punk that will click for fans of the genre’s huge revival of a decade ago — The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem, and especially early Liars — but feels utterly present and alive. The band’s recent single “Lawman,” a feral beast of a no wave song driven by insistent low-end skronk, is out this week on a limited edition 7-inch, and today we have its video from the production company Second/Frame. It’s a gritty, grayscale affair befitting the song’s repetitious aggression. Have a look below.

The “Lawman” b/w “Heckle The Frames” 7-inch is out now via Any Other City Records. Only 300 copies, so get ‘em while they’re hot.
