“Heartbeats” is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming Fortuna POP! album by Irish girl group September Girls. A tale of unrequited love and betrayal, “Heatbeats” is awash with fuzzy guitars, ethereal female vocals and entrancing melodies – underpinned by a hurt that catches the back of your throat. Named from a Big Star song as covered by the Bangles, September Girls comprise Paula on bass and vocals, Sarah on drums, Caoimhe on rhythm guitar and vocals, Lauren on keys and vocals and Jessie on lead guitar and vocals.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Phil Spector, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and Mary Chain, the five-piece play reverb-soaked noise-pop of the finest order, with distant layered harmonies, swirling organ and distorted guitars once described as “sounds from a transistor radio abandoned in a rural cinema.” Due to release their debut album “Cursing The Sea” in January, this September they released a limited edition tape for Cassette Store Day via PINS’ label Haus of Pins, entitled “Ships” which received a rave review on Pitchfork.
Sea foam green coloured vinyl 7” with jukebox hole (limited to 300).
