Gilla Band share new track ‘Backwash’

Lifted from their upcoming new album ‘Most Normal’.

With their new album ‘Most Normal’ set for release on 7th October on Rough Trade Records, Gilla Band (fka Girl Band) are sharing their latest single ‘Backwash’. “The initial idea for the whole album was that it would loosely sound like a dream,” singer Dara Kiely explains. “We didn’t really stick to the brief but it lead us down different sonic avenues. ‘Backwash’ is one of the few tracks where the words represent a dream-like circumstance. The lyrics are from a stream of consciousness rant, weird imagery and all that. The track is about attraction - fancying someone and not knowing what to say exactly. It’s an indirect love song, knowing you like someone but can’t quite articulate it. Thinking that you have already expressed your feelings, but like waking up from a dream you’ve forgotten what you actually have said or felt.” Check it out below. ‘Most Normal’ Tracklisting: 01) The Gum 02) Eight Fivers 03) Backwash 04) Gushie 05) Binliner Fashion 06) Capgras 07) The Weirds 08) I Was Away 09) Almost Soon 10) Red Polo Neck 11) Pratfall 12) Post Ryan See Gilla Band live at the following dates: SEPTEMBER 09 - Asten Heusden, NL @ Misty Fields Festival 17 - Leicester, UK @ Wide Eyed Festival OCTOBER 15 - Birmingham, UK @ Future Days Festival 16 - Bristol, UK @ Trinity 18 - Leeds, UK @ Brudenell Social Club 19 - Glasgow, UK @ SWG3 20 - Manchester, UK @ Canvas 22 - London, UK @ O2 Forum 23 - Brighton, UK @ CHALK NOVEMBER 11 - Kortrijk, BE @ Sonic City Festival 12 - Reims, FR @ La Cartonnerie Club 13 - Lyon, FR @ Le Marche Gare 15 - Zurich, CH @ Bogen F 16 - Milan, IT @ Biko 17 - Munich, DE @ Strom 19 - Berlin, DE @ Lido 21 - Copenhagen, DK @ Loppen 22 - Hamburg, DE @ Knust 24 - Cologne, DE @ Artheater 25 - Rotterdam, NL @ Maassilio 26 - Paris, FR @ La Gaite Lyrique DECEMBER 09 - Dublin, IE @ National Stadium 15 - Belfast, IE @ The Empire Get tickets to watch Gilla Band live now.
