On at about 12:17:46 PM, Gilla Band - Post Ryan was updated.
From their latest album "Most Normal," the Irish post-punk and noise rock band Gilla Band have released a new song named "Post Ryan."
The band formed in 2011, and its members are Dara Kiely (vocals), Alan Duggan (guitar), Daniel Fox (bass), and Adam Faulkner (drums).
Their first release, 2012's "In My Head," was followed by 2013's "You're a Dog," and both songs helped them gain a loyal live audience in their native Ireland and the United Kingdom.
After the single, the band released the live EP France 98 through Any Other City, which they had produced themselves.
As a result, in April of 2013, Gilla Band played a few shows in the United Kingdom, and their popularity skyrocketed after they released a cover of "Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?" by techno musician Blawan.
Gilla Band, formerly known as Girl Band, signed to Rough Trade Records at the end of 2014 after releasing a series of limited 7" singles on Any Other City records throughout the year.
It was after Geoff Travis, the label's founder, watched them play many times and wanted to "enable what [the band] was doing [at the time] on a greater scale" that he offered them a record contract.
All of Gilla Band's ideas were greenlit, and they were given free reign to make their own albums. In September 2015, they released Holding Hands With Jamie, their self-produced first album, through Rough Trade.
Gilla Band's first single in four years, "Shoulderblades," was released this past June. In the following August of 2019, a second single named "Going Norway" was released. Singles from the band's September 27th, 2018 album release via Rough Trade, titled The Talkies.
The album has a repetitious and experimental feel due to its unconventional usage of effects-laden guitars, abstract stream-of-consciousness lyrics, and stylistic borrowings from techno and industrial music.
The album has been called "noise rock" and "post-punk" by critics, and its gloomy, uncomfortable atmosphere has been praised.
A name change from Girl Band to Gilla Band was announced in November 2021. A statement released by the band explained that they felt their previous moniker "propagated a culture of non-inclusivity" and that was why they decided to alter it to something more neutral.
The first album of the band was positively welcomed by critics. This Irish four-piece yells at you from the very start, a continuous succession of pounding, crashing songs riddled with shattered, imagistic lyrics," as noted by The Guardian, a British newspaper.
According to Rolling Stone, Kiely's singing "certainly sounds believable." But he doesn't appear ashamed by it either; rather, he seems to have made a disturbing point of pride out of his fish-belly skin and concave abs. Among the bands that Rolling Stone drew comparisons to were Liars and Nick Cave's Birthday Party.
According to drummer Adam Faulkner, the band doesn't listen to "most of the bands we are compared to." Bad Brains, James Chance and the Contortions, Neu!, and The Chemical Brothers are just a few of the bands that have influenced the band.
To far, Gilla Band has produced a number of singles and EPs in addition to two full-length albums: the critically praised Holding Hands with Jamie (2015) and, following a hiatus in 2016–2017 due to health difficulties, the techno and glam infused The Talkies (2017). (2019).
