Reader’s Wives new EP ‘Secrecy & Sex’ is out now on iTunes & they’re playing The Odessa Club on 21st November to celebrate.
One Reader, Many Wives. Reader’s Wives are the kind of band we’ve all missed. Their avante garde pop music is the result of the four people involved, both musically and socially. They are Dubliners Niall James Holohan, Chris Morrin, Doug Farrell & Disko, and Reader’s Wives is where these four guys’ hectic lives meet. In the summer of 2006, songwriter Niall James Holohan produced an album of his best twelve tunes with a view to starting a band called Reader’s Wives.
Once tracked, Niall passed rough mixes of the album among friends in the Dublin underground, looking for the right combination of beautiful madheads to build on it’s musical blueprint of eclectic, tidy indie rock tunes with teeth. The satirical twists, topographical references & lyrical bite Niall showcased in his songs was already evident on the recordings, but in a modest admission of the limitations of his work as a solo artist, Niall knew he had to build a band who would follow him into war with the world.
To celebrate the release of their Secrecy & Sex EP, Reader’s Wives play the Odessa Club, Dame Court, Dublin on Saturday 21st November. Mozzy Green & Stroll On will be travelling from over from London to play & DJ, respectively.
