It seems Girl Band have been a bit quiet of late. I know from their somewhat sporadic updates that there’s been a few health problems in the Dublin camp, (cancelled shows) but it would seem things are getting back on track now, which is excellent news. In Plastic is the next single from the acclaimed, food-obsessed 2015 debut, Holding Hands With Jamie. Yes, it’s once again directed by Bob Gallagher
Another bloody year. It looks like end of year lists are being rattled out now, so best to jump on that bandwagon and rank a load of records I’ve listened to in some sort of order of preference.

They’ve also made another video (directed and produced by Bob Gallagher, who made the video for their Blawan cover, check it out) and it’s super weird.
