Girls Names share new track 'Karoline'

Words: Sam Geary

After they recently impressed the Little Indie Roundtable panel with '25', Girls Names have shared a second taster of their forthcoming new album with the stirring closing track, 'Karoline'.

Ahead of the release of ‘Stains on Silence’ on June 15 via Tough Love Records, the Belfast outfit follow the haunting '25' with the "fictional character who represents whatever you put on a pedestal and chase after" of 'Karoline'.

The band’s Cathal Cully adds: "In a way the whole record is Karoline. I think there's an element of getting older and life getting heavier; something is always holding you back, holding you down. The last line of the track and subsequently the record, "Eating out the scum in Western Man", was the working title of the LP for about a year and a half. A sobering end.”
