Darkenin Heart

Virgins have stood out as one of Ireland's most promising up-and-coming bands since the success of their acclaimed debut EP, transmit a little heaven, in 2023. Their latest single, s o f t er, has already become a favorite among live audiences.

An exhibition of explosive shoegaze, s o f t er revolves around a beautiful recurring lead riff, and Rebecca Dow's atmospheric, longing vocals. A body of rich reverbs and dreamy fuzz creates an amazing aura, transporting the audience to a colorful and serene realm.

This single release coincides with the announcement of Virgins' awaited debut album, nothing hurt and everything was beautiful, scheduled for release on April 11th, 2024 via Blowtorch Records. The band ventures into a broader sonic spectrum with this album.

Fans who pre-order the album through the band's Bandcamp page will receive an instant download of the exclusive non-album track, g l i s s, described by the band as "the bridge from the EP to the album, a sonic clue that nods to what came before but looks forward to what is about to come."
