Beady Eye – Bring The Light (Single Review)

Posted in Music, Single Review with tags , , , on November 10, 2010 by Tickets There

It’s excellent, no fooling! Laim Gallagher’s post-Oasis band Beady Eye have released their debut single, Bring The Light and it’s a perfect mix of classic guitar pop, sexy sixties dance vigor and that never-say-die rock n roll attitude we all secretly love about Liam.

Rather than the expected Beatles / Oasis rip off we all thought he was going to churn out, Liam has released a genuinely fun, thundering Piano / guitar driven masterpiece of song writing. It’s simple, it’s short and it’ll rock the ‘expletive’ socks off you. If we still had vinyl juke boxes in our diners, Bring The Light would be the song Danny Zuko would stick on. Now, let’s see what further treats their album has in store!

Ash – Embers (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , , on August 26, 2010 by Tickets There

Jez, just when we thought we’d heard all the A-Z series has to offer, Ash go and and blow you away! Their new single, Embers is just savage. Guitars flaring, Ricks drums being beat to shit and what’s that? I believe that’s a very, very catchy chorus in an Ash song.

I know what you’re thinking, why would Irish legends Ash have a catchy chorus, well it seems toe boys have been given a gift for writing 26 songs for one release that put most bands to shame, a point we’ve exhausted over these reviews.

Don’t waste time here reading about it folks (nice advertisement for the site lads!!!Ed), head on over to Ash-Official.com and hear it for yourself.

Ash – Carnal Love (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2010 by Tickets There

If there’s one song in the second part of Ash’s A-Z series that’s well and truly worth getting excited about it’s their new single, Carnal Love. Here they are, five tracks from the end and they come out with one the best songs of the whole series.

The verse is nice, stripped back, non-invasive and full of highly suggestive sexual references and all round warped in love, fantasy and naughtiness. The chorus notches things up with guitars a go go, harmonies and vocal changes to immerse you in all things Ash.

As always it’s catchy, it’s perfect in structure and overly appealing to the ears. Check the video out below (still not sure if we like it) and hear it for yourself. Official comes out Monday.

Zombie Cops – Taking Lives (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , on July 29, 2010 by Tickets There

Review: Stephen Byrne (Originally posted @ Alternative Irish Music Review)

Taking Lives is the second single from Dublin’s Zombie Cops is a complete change in tact from the excellent debut Win Some Loose Some. The song builds slowly from a progish “Down On The Upside” era Soundgarden guitar intro underlayed by a “On a Rope” type rhythm figure.

The call and response vocals of Kevin Fagan and Jamie Hughes work well throughout the entire song. Its back to more familiar musical territory for the verse and choruses as Jimmy Eat World, Open Hand, and Incubus influences are once again apparent. With a touch of Editors guitar trickery the song slows before ending on a flourish with a recap of the main riff.

Zombie Cops launch Taking Lives in Whelan’s of Wexford St. Dublin on Friday 6th of August and are also appearing at Danny Byrnes Garden of Music Festival in Mullingar on Sunday 8th of August.

Zombie Cops are worth the admission fee alone for their excellent version of Don’t You Want Me Baby.

Ash – Summer Snow (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , , , on July 18, 2010 by Tickets There

Another two weeks have passed and this time Tickets There guarantees you it’s been worth the wait because Summer Snow, Ash’s latest single from their A-Z series is a wonderful piece of music.

They’re sticking with the more simplistic style of writing that’s dominated the second part of the series but they’ve brought the guitars and bass right to the front for a thundering chorus that seems to conquer the rest of the song. Intro kicks off with a back n forth guitars, some background keyboards and Tim’s voice right at the forefront and sounding good n strong. Short, perfectly written and involving,everything you could want from an Ash track.

I think we’re tapped out with the words for Ash. Unlike them, we can’t produce fresh material every two weeks and that’s why we’re a lowly viewed poxy little blog and they’re the kick ass heroes of Irish pop rock. I certainly hope ye all caught their set at Oxegen and you’ve started your ‘come back to Dublin soon’ letters to their official site. We’ll see you in two weeks for the fifth last review of the series. Until then, enjoy Summer Snow.

The Murder Clues – Any Other Way (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , on July 16, 2010 by Tickets There

The Murder Clues are back with their third single. Any Other Way might be one of their older tracks but some studio time has revamped this tune to new heights giving it a brilliant new lease of life.

Barley stopping for a moment, the track bounces around with charismatic singer Brian’s vocals really starting to tale more and more shape as the years go on backed by some chunky bass snippets, pumped guitars and some furious drumming that really gives the song an adrenaline filled backbone.

The Murder Clues really are going in the right direction and we think it’s time you went and checked them out. Stand by for another post in 5,4,3,2…
