We're delighted to be able to say that Post War Glamour Girls long awaited debut album Pink Fur has arrived and is now available to treat your ears via vinyl, CD or download!

It's been deservedly receiving tons of hugely positive reviews...

"PWGG have sculpted not just a great record, but an incredibly important one." **** The405

"It’s an album, which is the perfect riposte to the veritable tsunami of vacant Brit-School electro-soul arse-wankery which seems to have clogged up music blogs and ‘tastemaker’ lists of late. Post War Glamour Girls prove there is an intelligent, challenging and utterly compelling alternative." (9.5/10) Andy Von Pip

"An unequivocal triumph, ‘Pink Fur’ is an album to get excited about." (10/10) WhisperinandHollerin

"Pink Fur contains more than enough sections to make one lose ones shit" **** The Line of Best Fit

"what makes this band stand out is the raw power of their performances – the ten tracks on Pink Fur explode from the speakers with a gut-churning intensity" Yorkshire Evening Post

"they’ve delivered an album that’s pretty close to perfection" (9/10) Shout4Music

"this is a musically accomplished, multi-layered affair, which lends itself to - nay demands - listening again and again" (9/10) Leeds Music Scene

Post War Glamour Girls - Pink Fur

  When Post War Glamour Girls first arrived onto the Leeds music scene in 2010 it didn't take long for the band to spark a fire and set up camp deep within my heart. I loved the beautiful, brooding Jekyll & Hyde nature of their first single 'Ode To Harry Dean', as well as the boisterous, rollicking live show that accompanied them everywhere. It started off watching them make regular appearances at Oporto, right up to standing in the giant NME/Radio 1 tent at Leeds Festival two years later, and seeing them blow the minds of all the new faces with the same rambunctious force that deservedly led them there. Since that summer it has been a pleasure to witnesses their debut album slowly taking shape via further releases and intense live shows including their Leeds City Museum gig with I Like Trains, plus Wakefield's Royal Theatre at Long Division, and the hugely attended triumphant performance in Stylus for Live at Leeds. 

It came as a very pleasant surprise when several months later the band asked if Hide & Seek would like to help release the finished article, 'Pink Fur'. Honoured and flattered at the prospect, before having even heard the recordings, the answer was a resounding "YES!". We were that confident that it was going to be a great record. However our predictions were slightly off target there... the band sent across the recordings back in September and the hasn't been a day since where I haven't listened to the album at least once. It even received an outing on Christmas Day! So even calling it just 'great' feels like I'm selling it short. I can't wait to be able to talk about this record, and fortunately there will now be a point soon where I'm no longer enthusing about it to people that aren't able to listen yet.

As Pink Fur is officially released 14th February, however if you pre-order the vinyl, CD or download you will be certain of receiving it before this date. The limited edition pink vinyl sold out very quickly, however vinyl lovers can still order the black version.

The band will also be performing Pink Fur in full at both London and Leeds launches. Never short of theatrics, the live setup will also include a host of guest musicians and a choir comprised of Leeds band members.

Leeds - 13th February - Brudenell Social Club
London - 14th February - Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen
Support at both gigs comes from Stalking Horse.

Very excited to have Allo Darlin' coming back to Leeds in what will be one of very few for them this year, at brand new city centre venue Belgrave Music Hall. They really are a great live band, capable of flitting between heartfelt indie-pop ditties to joyous moshpit creators. Expect new material as well as the favourites from both of their critically acclaimed albums, and quite possibly material from Elizabeth's new solo EP which is reviewed on Pitchfork here.
"Allo Darlin' are the best hope out there to carry the indie-pop flame from forebears like Belle and Sebastian, Camera Obscura, and the Lucksmiths."

In keeping with the recent trend of Leeds' finest bands from the noughties making a return, we will have The Lodger playing their first UK show since 2010. They are back with an ace new track, downloadable for free here

Tickets are only £7 advance, and available from all the usual suspects here:
