Irish Invasion: Dublin’s Girl Band Join Pittsburgh’s Spacefish
Girl Band – consisting of members Dara Kiely, Daniel Fox, Alan Duggan and Adam Faulkner – emerged in 2011 and have released a string of singles since then, recently welcoming their new EP, “The Early Years,” into the collection. Dubbed “Album of the Week” by SPIN magazine during its initial release, “The Early Years” features both original music and cover songs, including a cover of Blawan’s post-dubstep track, “Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?”
Girl Band’s stateside tour is both in celebration of “The Early Years” and in preparation for the band’s first full-length album, which is scheduled to come out this fall. Transitioning from “The Early Years,” which mostly consists of the band’s older music, the album will feature all new material.
Turning indie music on its head, local Pittsburgh duo Spacefish opens the show with their self-described Alien/American Gothic style. Consisting of N.R. Dibert and Bubba Clowson, Spacefish is also coming off of their new single, “Tin Man,” which was released in January and follows up their September 2014 EP, titled “A Love Story.”
