About Gilla Band

Noisy indie rock quartet Gilla Band (formerly known as Girl Band) made their name with a sound steeped in six-string distortion, electronic manipulation, hard rhythms, and surreal lyrics. The severity of their attack is enough to make less adventurous listeners blanch, yet there are flashes of wit lurking beneath the harsh surfaces that buffer the impact, and their wildly uncompromised music has won a potent cult following. 2015's Holding Hands with Jamie set the stage for their brutal variety of noise rock, and 2019's The Talkies offered a more personal lyrical stance informed by singer Dara Kiely's struggle with mental health issues, while 2022's Most Normal was tighter and more concise, but no less furious.
