I remember this being released very much in the "who will be the next U2" phase of the Irish music industry and thinking this could be a song that could do it for them. With this song, one of the few Irish Bands getting mainstream radio play at the time.

The Revenants were as good as, or better than any indie slackers that were on constant rotation on MTV back in the day
