Album of the week - Virgins nothing hurt and everything was beautiful
' ... hold the distinction of being one of Ireland most promising fuzz guitar bands since My Bloody Valentine'  Hot Press

Through towers of reverb drenched fuzz and gossamer yearning vocals Virgins bring us their highly anticipated debut album nothing hurt and everything was beautiful.


The album finds the band exploring a wider sonic palette, seamlessly moving between the gaze-pop of slowly, long and disappearer, to the dance influenced softer and to the ethereal heavy, expansiveness of pale fire and tend.


Their captivating sound doesn’t rely on recycling shoegaze tropes but brings a fresh and contemporary approach to the genre.

nothing hurt and everything was beautiful is an immense sound, one that showcases the band taking a further step forward in their evolution with exploratory and emotionally provocative music.
