Girl Band vs BOYBAND

No, I didn’t put BOYBAND in all caps because I WAS EXCITED ABOUT BOYBANDS, OMG. It’s their name. BOYBAND. Both Girl Band and BOYBAND are the names of the bands, in fact. Girl Band is not a girlband, though, and  has no girls in it. They took their name after meeting “an annoying girl” in a bar one night – a girl who committed the cardinal sin of liking the Wombats. BOYBAND was founded by Joe Lean, previously of Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong, remember them? (Me, neither). The Guardian describes them both bands as “gnarly noise-pop acts,” which means they have very little in common with actual boybands and girlbands. It’s blurry and industrial UK post-punk pop, and I think you might like them. Which is better though.
