Gilla Band (FKA Girl Band) serves sledgehammer hits: dissonant guitars, a rhythm section that thunders like a freight train and frontman Dara Kiely who twists every fiber of his voice over and over. They burst onto the scene in 2015 with their debut album Holding Hands with Jamie, stunning audiences with their furious, confrontational, visceral noise and singer Dara Kiely’s cleverly meandering screeds. 


The record won universal acclaim from outlets such as NPR, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NME, SPIN, Mojo, The Guardian and many more. Following a two-year hiatus, the group came together in late 2018 to record their follow-up, The Talkies, at Ballintubbert House, a stately manor on the outskirts of Dublin. The Talkies was released in Sept 2019, again to huge acclaim leading Billboard to comment,“ A sophomore album as raucous, pile-driving, Dadaist and primal as we’ve come to expect from the Dublin outfit”.

"The Talkies is an album so viscerally brilliant, it stays with you long after you’ve stopped listening."- 9/10 - Crack mag

“Of the current crop of noisey young bands emerging from Ireland, it’s Gilla Band who punch the hardest" - ***** - Record collector 

“Their second album ‘The Talkies’… it’s a knock-out, even better than their debut" - Loud & Quiet

"Gilla Band.. release probably the most dynamic, masterful and limitless record we’ve heard in recent years." - So young Magazine

"Gilla Band’s second (album) scarcely tempers their uncompromising sound. At once more abstract and more focused than their debut." - ***** - Mojo

"An overwhelmingly powerful listen." - 9/10 - Long live Vinyl
