Last we heard from Irish indie-pop outfit Girls Names, they had switched up their style on the elegant, entrancing 2013 album The New Life, looking towards the gleaming guitars and dark surfaces of vintage 1980s post-punk. Now they’re zoning out even further with the awesome eleven-minute single “Zero Triptych,” which will see release on 12″ via Tough Love Records.  Not only did I think it was the best name for a group of artists I’d ever heard, but their ideas, outlook and, most importantly, work struck a chord with me, Not quite a conventional ‘song’, nor EP, we knew about a year and a half ago that this piece of music was evolving into something not conventionally defined in the classic rock/pop vernacular. It’s essentially three different sections intertwined, hence the ‘triptych’., I don’t think this is something we’d have ordinarily tried were it not for the confidence we gained from touring a new line-up around Europe, when we learned to be a new band
