September Girls Releasing 12″ Vinyl EP

September Girls Releasing 12" Vinyl EP Veneer on November 24

September Girls have premiered‘ their video for “Veneer” from their new EP which will be released November 24 on Kanine Records and will be in stores on Black Friday. The video, which was directed by Jessie Ward O’Sullivan, was recorded overnight in Dublin and is based on a video concept developed by the band. Last month,September Girls will be performing at CMJ in support of their forthcoming EP.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The Velvet Underground, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus And Mary Chain, the five-piece play reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order, with distant layered harmonies, swirling organ and distorted guitar.

As their year of triumph draws to a close, September Girls returns with a brand new four track EP titled Veneer, recorded deep underground in Guerilla Studios, Dublin. Whilst still retaining their signature drenched feedback sound, the tracks have a greater depth and polish than the album recordings. Each of the four tracks is written and sung by a different member of the band, who describe their songs individually below:

Veneer – Veneer was written to stand up to the force that stifles creativity and expression. Like a critical voice in your head that tells you you’re not good enough, it leaves you feeling empty and useless. “Seductive veneer” refers to the easy option, which is quitting. I think the message of the song is to ignore that voice and do it anyway – Caoimhe
Black Oil – Sarah and I started jamming out the music one day in the studio. The imagery in the lyrics came from a couple of places, the first being a dream I had, the second being some crazy stuff I had written down on Christmas night last after a few drinks. The meaning of the lyrics “if I could swim, I’d be dead by now” is about acceptance of ones own limitations and the realisation that perhaps sometimes your perceived shortcomings can be the thing that saves you – Paula
Melatonin – There are many things that can keep you up at night; Melatonin is a lullaby to oneself to try to keep sane when plagued with insomnia – Jessie

Butterflies – About navigating life after heartbreak, negotiating the balance between heart and head, abandon and protection – Lauren
