Post War Glamour Girls
“Post War Glamour Girls have an energy, an intelligence which marks them out.” – Clash Magazine
Leeds’ much loved post-punk quartet Post War Glamour Girls have announced details of their third album ‘Swan Songs’ which will be released on Hide & Seek Records on the 21st of April. ‘Swan Songs’, the follow up to 2015’s acclaimed ‘Feeling Strange’ and their outstanding debut album, 2014’s ‘Pink Fur’ is musically reminiscent of The Pixies and Wild Beasts with the dual vocals of James and Alice evocative of Mark E. Smith trading off against Kim Gordon.
The four-piece have spent the last few years building up an impressive body of work, showcasing an innate knack for creating intricately layered and intelligent compositions with an almost theatrical Bad Seeds-like build up. While the mainstream has noticed, with the band already receiving heavy support from Clash, DIY, The 405, The Line Of Best Fit, and being invited to perform on the NME/BBC Radio 1 stage at the Reading and Leeds festivals, it’s the incredible amount of underground fan-driven support that has marked Post War Glamour Girls out as a major band to watch. Tackling themes of stress, anxiety, depression, the class system, religion, war and government, the band decamped to the remote village of Skerray on the North Coast of Scotland with producers Jamie Lockhart and Lee Smith of Greenmount Studios (Pulled Apart By Horses, I Like Trains, Frank Turner, The Vaccines) to disconnect from the world and place themselves entirely in the album recording process for ‘Swan Songs’
