GIRLS NAMES: Unveil epic new track 'ZERO TRIPTYCH' - Listen

Today Belfast’s Girls Names debut their music video for ‘A Hunger Artist’ from Arms Around a Vision out Oct 2 on Tough Love. Directed by Matthew Reed, the new video is an homage to British music TV of the 70’s and 80’s, which introduced the then-rising punk and art rock movement of artists like The Fall, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Iggy Pop, and others. Reed explains, “The video is a homage to the types of performances you used to see on British TV programs like Tony Wilson’s ‘The Other Side of Midnight’ in the eighties.

We wanted to try and capture the weird atmosphere those performances had. When you found spiky, totally avant garde music suddenly sharing space with stilted and awkward regional TV. With a bit of humor thrown in for good measure.”
