"Bourbon" was the debut single released in 2007 by the Sensors themselves and distributed in the Dublin area. This single was mastered by Andrew Jackson, most well-known for his award-winning work with Pink Floyd.

A music video was produced for another Sensors track called "Too Long On the 'Joke Song'" and is available to view at



When America got too weird after the Texan's ascent to the White House, Heather Thompson decided she’d better get out of the country while it was still possible. She wandered around much of Europe with her guitar for awhile before settling in Dublin, where the beer is good, though not as cheap as in Budapest, and the record stores are cheap, but not as messy as in London.

And what else to do in this fabulous new environment but start a rock'n'roll band?

The Sensors were soon rehearsing together, playing an eclectic mix of dirty slinky rock in venues around the city, including a stint as the centrepiece for last year's burlesque-themed fresher's ball at Maynooth campus with the Tassel Club. They played a successful and memorably theatrical set at Hard Working Class Heroes 2007.

Heather's songwriting style has been described as a "rockabilly PJ Harvey" and the Sensors have received airplay on Phantom FM, Anna LiviaFM, and Xfm Dublin.

The band has announced their inclusion on exclusive music download site, thanks to Road Records and Nokia.
