The Holy Sparks!!! are a trio obsessed with historical villains, dark shadows and eternal truths. A wide variety of instruments and influences are mixed to produce their sound. Their recent promo video ”ming!” has been described as ”a somewhat energetic new wave, almost gothic offering from Dublin, whose bass punches and throbs, while heightened guitars exchange taunts with vocals, shrouded by haunt(ed) low-end reverb.”(the weekend polution blog). Their debut 4 track EP ‘plots of the patriarchs’ is released on drunkenlust records on 8th dec, and will be available freely from www.drunkenlustrecords.com. Their energetic live shows are not to be missed.
Für Immer formed in January 2010 with a view to combining innovative visuals and heartfelt music in the face of a recession gripped Ireland. Für Immer were jaded by the indie scene and tired of performing their music as a back drop to binge drinking.They strove to cut a new path, where performances would be a feast for the senses and all would be invited to share the experience of an intimate space filled with sound and light. Für Immer present performances in atypical venues to give people an opportunity to engage with the music and the band in unfamiliar surroundings, breathing life into off-beat, unused or forgotten spaces.
I [heart] The Monster Hero is winsome musical collage, a mash-up of primitive sounds that toe the line between lo-fi and no-fi but together manage to engender an instinctively hooking, bubbly sunshine pop.
