Interview and track from our Bulmers Berry 'Music' winners.
The Bulmers Berry ‘Who’s Hiding In The Undergrowth?’ competition gave bands across Ireland the opportunity to get their voices (and music) heard. Upon spying his chance on hotpress.com, Swords drummer Ian Frawley didn’t hesitate, quickly submitting ‘Chasm’, a ridiculously up-tempo affair that sports psychedelic synth work, disco beats and some deceptively caustic vocals. It’s the kind of song that refuses to leave your head for hours, almost smug at just how damn hooky it is. The judging panel was suitably impressed.
“When you get down to the final two acts and realise that people who are really into their music have judged you, it’s brilliant,” Ian enthuses. “Then when you get on to your supporters, friends and fans and get a massive reaction then it’s brilliant on two levels.”
