The Collision. are a five-piece alt-pop/rock band from Co. Offaly featuring Ciaran Brennan, Diarmuid Brady, Seán Brady, Connor Rice and Callum Bergin.
Rising midlands band The Collision. have unveiled their brand new single 'Baby in Winter', accompanied by a moody, vintage-esque video
'Baby in Winter' was co-written by band members Ciaran Brennan and Diarmuid Brady, with the single exploring the commercialism we are bombarded with daily.
The story delves into consumerism through a lens of nostalgia, with the truths of the verses glossed over by the infectiously catchy hook.
Built on a groovy chorus, the song plots the battle between the joys and trappings of materialism. This hopeful banger is laced with longing for the simplicity of days gone-by which is overtaken by the infinite pleasures of today.
“‘Baby in Winter’ really lifts you up inside and it persuades you to be yourself," Diarmuid told Hot Press, with Ciaran nodding in agreement: “It’s my favourite track from the EP. I love writing with Diarmuid and I think ‘Baby in Winter’ shows how well our contrasting styles work together.”
Five-piece alt-pop rockers The Collision. have earned their Offaly stripes, performing at local venues and garnering a reputation for fun live shows.
The group has received radio play on Tipp FM’s Premier Irish, Shannonside FM and KCLR96FM’s Ceol Anocht. The band's recent single 'Weightless' also received great praise from the likes of Hot Press and many other tastemakers.
The Collision. write music that is bursting with personality and energy, backing up their innovative studio recordings with exciting gigs. A knack for showmanship has led to interest in the outfit, with the group set to release their debut EP, Latent Pulse, later this year.
The project features five brand new brilliantly crafted songs produced by the group themselves, including two singles ‘Weightless’ and ‘Baby in Winter’.
Debut single ‘Little 22’ dropped in August 2020 shortly after their inception, followed by ‘Swing’ later that year. Their latest single ‘Lemon Bake It’ arrived in February 2021.
