Last Thursday we were joined on the indie hour by Ciaran, Gav, Rob, Andrew and Eimear of Band On An Island.
The five piece told us about their music history to date, about their previous unsuccessful recording experiences, Sega Mega Drives (rubbish!), the Irish music scene, jumping on cars in Newbridge, and what drives them to make music together.
The lads and lady played two live tracks for us, and we heard two tracks from the Triple A-Sided single The Burning Shoulder. It’s more of a short EP really, and it’s available exclusively at Road Records.
Also on this show, we heard Play Drums from Danish outfit A Kid Hereafter, whose set I thoroughly enjoyed at HWCH last weekend. Well, the end of their set anyway. We also heard Harmonic from The Minutes, Bad Shoes by Stagger Lee, and Nialler9 recommended Backed Out on The… from Spirit If… from Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew.
