MySpace Review – C!ties

On the ball today. Loads of great music, loads of people visiting Tickets There (which always makes us smile) and lots of sunshine for the soaking. Time for another look at some of Ireland’s finest bands. One of Tickets There’s earliest readers mentioned this band in a message to us and it didn’t take too many of their songs to convince us they deserve a praising review. So let’s get to it, shall we?

As usual, I’ve never seen the band live or heard their album (I do go to gigs and buy records, just seem to miss all these guys).

After listening to them for a while, I’m reminded of A.S.I.W.Y.F.A. and I’ll Eat Your Face…a little. Instrumental heavy rock / metal with some added keyboards for good measure. First song Satellites is a blast. Very fast in places, very heavy in others and several relaxed moments letting the listener unwind and enjoy the sights. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Ireland has some fantastic instrumental bands on the go at the moment and these guys are another example of that. Second track, 4plus1equals5 is very similar to Satellites but in a good way. I’m never really sure what to say about instrumental acts other than they’re deadly or they’re shit. This band are the former. The music is more than good enough on it’s own to keep you interested and there’s more than enough changes to keep the song’s ‘building’ feel.

Interlude is third and brings on a totally different buzz. One that would be closer to Le Galaxie than ASIWYFA. Despite me comparing, I don’t want ye getting confused. This group have their own style and I don’t want to overshadow that. Interlude is a nice, sublime sort of peaceful effort. Dive, Dive, Dive on the other hand, is a blistering slice of pure grunge styled rock. Heavy guitars, ball busting drums and all the works. Wee stompy breaks and more pounding on everything they can play or find. Savage!!

15728 (actually the second last track, MySpace skipped it) finishes things off and it’s similar to Interlude except a radio kind of voice is repeating the numbers over the music. Very atmospheric. Like it was just plucked from a Resident Evil game. As the song progresses, it could be compared to a Prodigy number rather than a metal band. Great heavy dance beats, electronica up the wazoo and the whole shebang. Fuck writing about it, I’m going back to listen.

Highly recommended and they’re playing the HWCH Festival tonight, 20:55 in Twisted Pepper Click Here For More Details.
