Dublin’s Girl Band were named a Band To Watch earlier this year, and after touring the United States and taking on festivals like SXSW, it’s safe to say that they’ve carved out a little space for themselves on this side of the Atlantic. Their forthcoming debut album, Holding Hands With Jamie, is due out at the end of the month, and today the band put out a new single and video in honor of its impending release. “Pears For Lunch” is an experiment in contradiction — it boasts all of the same impulsive energy of Girl Band’s live sets, but Dara Kiely drawls throughout, his deadpan apathy heightened by the accompanying video. The Bob Gallagher-directed short chronicles the trials and tribulations of a man who has a television for a head. Watch below.
Holding Hands With Jamie is out 9/25 via Rough Trade.
