Following on from a trio of critically acclaimed singles this year, including 'Head Start', 'This City Doesn’t Feel Like Home To Me', and 'Battles', Bray indietronica quintet Columbia Mills have finally released their debut album, A Safe Distance To Watch.
Having already gotten a sneak peak at the lads in action during their recent performance at Hennessy Lost Fridays in October, we knew that Columbia Mills had pulled out the stops for their debut.
But aside from the killers songwriting, there's also the remarkably high production quality to boot. A Safe Distance To Watch was recorded in Westland Studios in Dublin between December 2015 and February 2016 and produced and mixed by the one and only Rob Kirwan. (U2, Hozier,Depeche Mode)
According to the band, the overarching theme of the album is "putting space between yourself and someone else or certain situations to avoid being influenced negatively or to avoid influencing someone else with your own negativity. Finding or providing peace by putting a distance between yourself and someone else despite the short term or long term pain it creates."
