The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Matchbox Recordings in England will be releasing a compilation album called 'The big indie comeback' which we will be a part of. They heard our demo and choose the track 'Run and Hide' to feature on the album. The album will be distributed and available through Matchbox Recorings, Amazon, CD Baby USA, Tower Records.Com and Super D, a worldwide music wholesaler, who sells to over 1300 retailers every week. This album will be released on the 26th June 2006 and will be given extensive airplay throughout the UK from specialist/alternative DJs,who will be given the CD through the Matchbox A&R agency.
Currently we are also receiving extensive airplay from national and regional radio stations throughout Ireland and from our recent review in HOTPRESS (April 20th) we are currently preparing for some important gigs around Ireland.


Feeling a bit camera shy


In the recent edition of Hotpress, April 20th (Irelands biggest music review magazine), our music, on CD, was described as being 'full of hard rocking melodic exuberance', but as a live band we give it even more energy, vigor and effervescence than is possible. What sets us apart from other bands is that we mean it, its evident in the way Lorcan delivers the songs, he means every word. Every chord we strike, we mean it and every drum beat James delivers he means it. This is the story behind the title to the track,'The more that i mean it'. It comes about from seeing too many bands performing, whos hearts don't seem to be in it. To us, a great band is one that gives off energy and excitement you can feel and music you can believe in.
Influences within the band vary, but music from the 60s and 70s is definetly a big influence as it was fro this era that many of the classic melodic bands came about, such as The Beatles, The Kinks and Led Zeppelin. Those bands had an attitude that was very positive and energetic and like them we hope to portray our music in a similar way, but in our own unique way. Our songs are full of upbeat tempos and have been described in one national music magazine as 'Stompers'. Our songs gets the audience on their feet and wanting more and as a band we are only too happy to deliver.
