Attachment Styles

    Irish intersectional feminist five piece M(h)aol have announced their debut album 'Attachment Styles' out via TULLE.

    Following the release of their debut EP 'Gender Studies', the band hit the ground running in 2022. Gaining a reputation as one of the most sought after live bands of the summer, M(h)aol performed at Primavera, Green Man, Latitude, and End of the Road, toured Europe with Gilla Band and Shellac, and more.

    Gracing the cover of Spotify’s Hot New Bands multiple times, and based between Dublin, London, and Bristol, M(h)aol (pronounced male) are formed of Róisín Nic Ghearailt (She/Her), Constance Keane (She/Her), Jamie Hyland (She/Her), Zoë Greenway (She/Her), and Sean Nolan (He/Him).

    Today the 5-piece announce their debut album Attachment Styles out 3rd February 2023 via TULLE Collective.

    ‘Attachment Styles’ is a record about social connection, queerness and healing. When Róisín was writing the lyrics, she used the theory of attachment styles as an overarching theme which is a theory that looks at the impact our inter-familial relationships and society have on how we relate to one another.

    With the album, the listener goes on a journey of healing. We start with 'Asking For It', a song that deals with one of the worst things that can happen to someone, then we travel through various stages of self-acceptance and community building with the triumphant ‘Period Sex’. Bassist Jamie produced, mixed, and mastered the album where she wanted to capture the live element, meaning it was recorded in one small room with no headphones, minimal drum mics, and only a PA for vocals.


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Bold strokes of booming bass and mid-heavy punky guitar stabs form the perfect backdrop for the emotive vocals of Róisín Nic Ghearailt, tackling issues like social connection and gender identity. It's a ferocious and perfectly delivered maelstrom.

    Grave Goods

    Tuesday. Nothing Exists

      London and Dublin based women-led independent label Tulle are back with 'Tuesday. Nothing Exists' - the debut album from three-piece Grave Goods.

      Featuring current and former members of PINS, Girls Names and September Girls, the Sartre-rock trio are based between Manchester, Belfast and Dublin. Taking influence from early post-punk and minimalist rock, Grave Goods music has been described as urgent and demanding, claustrophobic yet spacious - guaranteed to grab your attention. Their influences come from early post-punk and minimalist rock, and their music is visceral and angular, set against a lyrical backdrop of existential ennui.

      Their first track released 'Juice' was featured on A Litany of Failures Volume III, and in December 2021 they released new single 'Phonetic Fetish'. This highly anticipated debut full-length 'Tuesday. Nothing Exists' was recorded at Invada studios, Bristol.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Liam says: Just the phrase "Debut album from current and former members of PINS, Girls Names and September Girls" pretty much sells this record itself. At times sparse, at others visceral and snarling, Grave Goods' 'Tuesday, Nothing Exists' is for those hankering for some proper gnarly post-punk.

      Fears

      Oíche

        Pieced together over five years, Oíche chronicles growth through challenges, instability, and relationship changes, both with one's self and others. The album reveals itself much like a coming of age novel about the breaking apart of girlhood and rebuilding of a young woman.

        An intimate depiction of discovery, Oíche unearths internal dialogue, and makes peace with uncertainty. Oíche, meaning 'night' in Irish, was recorded in three bedrooms, hospital, and the Domino Recordings studio in Brixton.

        Fears is London-based Irish artist Constance Keane. Combining reflective electronics, acoustic samples, and haunting vocals with organic visuals, Fears invites the listener on an ethereal journey, blurring the boundaries between music and visual art. Her minimalist approach centres on emotive subjects, which are all-at-once deeply personal yet remarkably universal.

        Oíche is the first release on TULLE, run by and for exceptional women.


        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: In parts brittle, raw and minimalistic before breaking into deep, rich electronics and beautifully produced meandering instrumentation, 'Oiche' is a rich and dynamic juxtaposition of genre biases and electronic-adjacent songwriting. Immediately alluring, but unendingly expressive, this is a wonderfully produced and cleverly written gem.
