Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


All four members are passionate about music, and the band is known for their innate ability to traverse a wide range of styles and genres with apparent ease. Not only can they turn their collective hands to Burt Bacharach inspired pop, Byrdsian rock, and guitar-driven indie tunes, they can also throw in the odd stray reggae rhythm, and can come up with something as unexpected as the Jacques Brel-like 'City of Engineers'. Purposely eclectic and openly acknowledged influences come together in original songs in the jangly Rickenbacker-driven guitar pop tradition. Saville are Ken O'Duffy on vocals and guitar, brother Vinny on bass, Tony "Tosh" Flood on guitar, piano, vocals and assorted other instruments, and Joey Fitzgerald on drums. All hail from Coolock on Dublin's north side, and all have been friends since their schooldays. Their self-financed debut album Is Anybody Happier Today, released in 2000 on their own bdb label received rave reviews, and was declared one of Ireland's finest albums in recent years. The band received tremendous accolades for their superb grasp of songwriting and pop sensibility, and soon they were playing to packed houses in Dublin and beyond. They were the first unsigned band to appear on BBC's prestigious music programme Top Of The Pops 2, and also earned an appearance on MTV's Unsigned. The follow-up album Somnambular Ballads, released October 2003 on the Dublin indie Reekus label, was again hailed as "not just one of the best Irish albums of 2003, but one of the best albums of the year, period". (Evening Herald), with all the critics agreeing that the album highlights the band's talent for fusing heavenly pop with masterful songwriting. Their recent single, What's On My Mind enjoyed a stint in the Irish charts, and gained the band several prestigious appearances on television and radio shows. 2008 saw the release of Nostalgia, again to outstanding reviews, and quality airplay for songs such as Stop Telling Lies, It Dont Feel Right Anymore, and Seventeen. Saville are known for the great live shows, whether as the nucleus four-piece, or with the addition of pedal steel guitar and brass section. Their set is built around tracks from their three albums, with the addition of one or two selected covers from the likes of Booker T., and Dillard and Clark.

*Saville's previously unreleased cover of the Dillard and Clark classic "Why Not Your Baby" is now available to stream on the Reekus Music Player. The track is an outtake from the sessions for the album "Somnambular Ballads"*
