Acrobat. New Single & Video. Follow You Down.

11 Mar

 
Acrobat have released a new single and video to go with it. The song is entitled ‘Follow You Down’ its an upbeat alternative rock offering with hints of early U2 in the song writing and guitar mixed with some more American alt rock influences.
The video is a beautifully shot short film featuring the band and some pretty nasty character’s who they get into trouble with. Set in Dublin City it echoes the recent interest in crime drama’s like Love/Hate.
Acrobat have been on the up and up recently with support slots with the likes of Bastille and Mark Owen as well as getting to open for Mumford And Sons at Arthur’s Day. This April see’s the release of their debut EP ‘Follow You Down’ on April 4th through Stoneship Records. The EP will be available from iTunes, Spotify and Deezer.

Midnight Hour, Whelan’s, #4 feat: Redwoods, Fears, Skyward Rifles.

The Midnight Hour at Whelans

This Thursday the 27th of February sees the return of the monthly Midnight Hour gig Upstairs at Whelans. Kicking off at 12.00 and finishing somewhere around 2.00 having taken in three brilliant up and coming Irish bands it’s the best way to spend your Thursday this week. Best of all you can get in free, just send a message to any of the bands or Pickled Onion Records and you can get on the list. Run by Irish independent label Pickled Onion Records the night features Redwoods a young four piece Irish band from Greystones who released their debut ep last year and got themselves a spot on The Late Late Show. Delivering an upbeat indie pop sound with influences from american noughties punk pop and tiny hints of ska with the odd brass instrument thrown in.

Redwoods: Me and My Mates.

 
Fears are a different story altogether playing more subdued atmospheric alternative rock with electronic influences think Ladytron with a hint of folk. The only bio about them online is that they write music in car parks at night-time. So I can tell you they are from Ireland and they deliver a fantastic, moody and atmospheric live set. They’re a nice mystery for you to unravel on the night.


 

Skyward Rifles round out the night perfectly with another combination sound of electro indie rock, heavily influenced by the likes of New Order and Echo And The Bunnymen and other 80’s New wave bands they have a polished and professional sound.

We Cut Corners. Best Friends. New Single.

22 Feb

 
Here is the video for We Cut Corners new single ‘best friend’ a moody black and white animation to go with one of their more aggressive songs to date. It’s a pencil drawn animation full of scenes of smoke, fire, protests, riot police and natural disasters.Echoing the lyrics which have hints of political overtones and commentary on society.
