Dublin’s September Girls derive their name from the classic Big Star track. More than a name, though, they also adopt some of that iconic act’s own power pop prowess along with it. Earlier this year, the group released their debut album, Cursing The Sea, which featured their unique blend of swooning vocals and lo-fi guitar riffs. On November 25th, they’ll push their sound in new directions with their latest EP, Veener (via Kanine Records).
The EP’s title track sees the band toning down their playful surf rock tendencies and fully giving in to their “dark side.” The gorgeous melodies are still there, only now they’re hidden beneath layers of harsh guitar tones and thundering drums. The track continuously builds throughout until resolving in a clamor of screeching feedback. While more aggressive than their previous material, the tenacious new sound is an apt fit for their fuzzed out aesthetic.
