Dublin-based noise pop quintet September Girls – Caoimhe, Jessie, Lauren, Paula & Sarah – unleash the video for ‘Black Oil’, another of their striking dark-hearted pop tunes included in their superb ‘Veneer’ EP , OUT NOW via Fortuna Pop / Kanine Records.

Speaking about ‘Black Oil’ Paula says: Sarah and I started jamming out the music one day in the studio. The imagery in the lyrics came from a couple of places, the first being a dream I had, the second being some crazy stuff I had written down on Christmas night last after a few drinks. The meaning of the lyrics “if I could swim, I’d be dead by now” is about acceptance of ones own limitations and the realisation that perhaps sometimes your perceived shortcomings can be the thing that saves you…”September Girls7
