On the Radio 1 playlist this week are Girls Names and their track Hypnotic Regression. The band take up the weekly BBC Introducing spot on the playlist and are rewarded with daytime plays across the week. Not only that but they are also playing BBC Introducing Live in Derry-Londonderry tonight (Monday May 13th) alongside SOAK and Silhouette. Listen to the track below and tell us what you make of it in the comments section.

Hometown: Girls Names are a four-piece band based in Belfast.

Style: Hypnotic Regression is taken from the group's recently released second album The New Life. It is gloriously gloomy with Cathal Cully's haunting low key vocals and a fast bobbing bassline pitched up against shimmering guitars that reverberate through its heart. Hypnotic indeed.

You need to know: We'll have videos and photos from the band's performance in Derry-Londonderry going live later this week... And you'll find them here.

Supported by: The track was first played by BBC Radio Ulster's Across The Line in February and they've since gone on to be played by BBC Introducing with Jen and Ally and Huw Stephens' Wednesday night show.
