Girls Names preview new LP with ‘I Was You’


Girl Names have shared ‘I Was You’ – the final cut to be previewed from their forthcoming LP ’Arms Around A Vision’, before its October 2nd release date. The brooding, lo-fi tangled new single sees the Belfast natives push their experimental boundaries to the limit.

Discussing the tracks concept, frontman Cathal Cully commented:

“The song wrote itself. I was in a trance. I went for a wander and lost myself somewhere between my life then and my life in the present. The limbo of heartache took hold of my senses, and, if i was pushed to explain my state of mind at the time, I’d say i was transfixed by an idea of hatred and self-loathing. But there is no horror, no evil nor darkness without the existence of love, beauty and light. The song is positioned somewhere within that dialectic, and as such I Was You is the most beautiful song in the Girls Names repertoire to date.”
