"Monkey Pole Reviews"

Redtrackmusic.com - Album Of The Year
Hybrasil along with the Go! Team and a select few are a band pushing boundaries and making genuinely exciting music. As bands such as Kasabian and Reverend and The Makers have shown, imitation is not always the purest form of flattery, neither is it conducive to quality. These bands may be taking the plaudits from the lazy music press at the moment but soon that may all change, if music god willing, Hybrasil get their way.

Ideas pour from every verse, chorus and bridge forming one of the most perfect albums in years. In one fell swoop Hybrasil have shot to the top of the heap that the Irish music industry flailing try to bolster with refuse. Other bands may talk the talk but Hybrasil have knuckled down and produced the goods where it matters. They Got Music.

The Sunday Times - Records Of The Year
Hybrasil's first album is a joy, eclipsing hipper cosmopolitan cousins, since front man John 'Spud' Murphy imbues even its most cluttered electro-rock with supremely catchy tunefulness.

Live, the band can be an exhilarating experience and in many ways their debut album 'The Monkey Pole' successfully recaptures that feeling. In fact at their best, like on When I'm Yawning, Hybrasil generate audio torrents that Liverpool's finest Clinic would be proud to call their own. This is the sound of the first collaboration between a music producing A.I. robot and man. As you might have guessed it's also the sound of the future.

If the collision of classic riffs and electronica takes your fancy, you won't be found wanting with these up-for-it Wicklow lads. There's nothing fashionable about their brand of guitar and synth rock, but they deliver their spiky, playful tunes with the sort of elan that is likely to appeal to even the most curmudgeonly of music snobs.

Moloko's Roisin Murphy had better watch her back; her role as Wicklow's coolest export (after various waterfalls, mountains and err, Ballykissangel, that is) is under serious threat from five twentysomething blokes known collectively as Hybrasil.

Wicklow's Hybrasil set themselves apart from the oversubscribed electro crowd with this textured, original opus.

Fusing the sweetest pop moments from bands like 80s post punk icons New Order with the melodic indie rock of the Stone Roses and the lighter side of electronica, Hybrasil have created a stunning sound they call 'indietronic'. There's no doubt there is a serious pool of musical talent bubbling under the surface of the Irish music scene and with 'The Monkey Pole' Hybrasil have heralded their ambition as leaders of the pack.

Galway Advertiser
Hybrasil are probably one of Ireland's best kept secrets, which probably isn't good for them. They won't be kept secret for much longer as their debut album is sure to get them noticed. 'The Monkey Pole' is a mixture of all things good, with echoes of Ian Brown, John Lennon and the Gorillaz. It's good to hear such fresh tunes from an Irish band. Expect big things from these boys.
