Our highly recognizable artists Joe and Luke McGarry have just signed their band Pop Noir to RCRD LBL, also sometime online home of L.A. RECORD alums like Abe Vigoda, Crystal Antlers, Cold War Kids, Dead Meadow, Flying Lotus, HEALTH, No Age, Mae Shi and more. Congrats to them and we look forward to a triumphant commemorative self-portrait. Words from RCRD LBL plus an MP3 below:

“What Interpol are to Joy Division, Pop Noir are to New Order—their new single “Girls of Prey” could be an epic cut from the Mancunians classic LP Power, Corruption and Lies, such is its sheer pop power and ’80s throwback sheen. And when we say sheen, we do mean sheen: if “Girls of Prey” got any deliciously glossier it would be $3.99 at your local newsstand. The shiny, swelling synths are also very reminiscent of one of the more carefree scenes in a John Hughes movie. We can only imagine a 16-year-old Molly ringwald being a huge fan.

Pop Noir have signed a deal with RCRD LBL, thus becoming the newest addition to our extended musical family.”
