Still working on that hot first release.



Coming from a background of rock, a touch of Indie spice and a carefully crafted blend of pop-rock melodies, Karrier are a Dundalk/Dublin based five-piece band that seem to have sprung from nowhere in the last couple of months. Since October 2006, the guys have managed to rapidly move up the Dublin gig scene ladder, recorded an eight track c.d, which has received rave reviews and continuous air-play, played support to female sensation Pink in Malahide castle, and have gained the interest that they were looking for from a top independent U.K based record label…
“Sometimes a record comes along that seems both familiar and foreign, composed of recognisable elements yet obviously imbued with furtive and weird. Dundalk/Dublin five-piece Karrier gave us a mini album that could have been written by Thom Yorke on mega-strength Prozac, or Coldplay channelling the Beach Boys, not least on the happy-clappy, dream-bright luminosity of ‘Back In Your Arms’"…......Sunday Independent.

Over the next couple of months, Karrier will be building up their portfolio with plenty of strategically chosen support slots both in Ireland and the U.K. In addition to this, the boys will be going into the studio to work on an E.P due for release this July 2008, with their debut album to follow this summer.
The formation of the band as a cohesive unit has been slightly comical, yet magical. Having formed in Sep’ 06 with only three members, Phil Kirk, Daren Joyce and Brian Holmes, the boys decided to record an eight track c.d employing Dave Hingearty (ex-Frames drummer, currently working with Josh Ritter) on drums and Rob Malone (David Gray) on bass. While recording, the trio had the stumbling pleasure of meeting Steve J. Ryan who, not only engineered the c.d but more importantly was a ‘dab-hand with the sticks’ (Karrier‘s drummer). Since then, the boys have managed to get their hands on Dublin based Peter King on bass.
So, after a brief sojourn on the live front, Karrier have managed to step up a gear and it looks like another breakthrough is expected to take place in very soon…yep, it’s a case of watch this space……
