“The song wrote itself,” explains frontman Cathal Cully. “I was in a trance. I went for a wander and lost myself somewhere between my life then and my life in the present. The limbo of heartache took hold of my senses, and, if I was pushed to explain my state of mind at the time, I’d say I was transfixed by an idea of hatred and self-loathing. But there is no horror, no evil nor darkness without the existence of love, beauty and light. The song is positioned somewhere within that dialectic, and as such ‘I Was You’ is the most beautiful song in the Girls Names repertoire to date.”

The band have a host of UK and European tour dates coming up as well.
