MySpace Review – Goatboy

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, MySpace Review with tags , , , , , , , on July 22, 2010 by Tickets There

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

Its hard to believe that Goatboy emerged from the fumbling progish offerings of the Screaming Skies to become one of Ireland’s finest singer/songwriters.

Winter Tears is a fine ballad ephemeral, yet gusty. Akin to Arcade Fire and Bon Ivor. Mark O’Sullivan’s rich reverbed vocals resonate beautifully throughout all of his songs, especially so in New Moon where the intelligent mimicking of the harmony vocals by the piano, electric guitar, and strings, build to a very earthy sing-a-long chorus.

With For Your Love its as if James Taylor and Death Cab for Cutie have collaborated in the Bermuda Triangle the juxtaposition of pure country slide guitar led verses and uptempo alt rock guitar choruses shouldn’t work, but work they do.

Japanese City Nights is a fantastic Electro instrumental. The bass and Synth riffs play off each other beautifully and its also the standout track from Indiecator Records World Cup themed compilation “Fastforward”.

Goatboy plays Pick for the Picnic at Crawdaddy on the 22nd of July.
