Ahead of his performance Upstairs at Whelan's, Underachiever has unveiled a new single, 'Angry Banger'
Underachiever has returned with his first single of the year: the steady, audio-fuzzy track 'Angry Banger.'
Headed by Tony McLoughlin, an accomplished mandolin player known for working with Junior Brother and a former member of The Young Folk, the Underachiever song features Sinéad White and was produced by Chris Barry. It was also mastered by Stephen Cersia.
McLoughlin's project has brought to life an electronic track built upon a technological synth permeated by a backing of a constant, cymbal-sounding beat. About conflict, it was inspired by the projection of one's insecurities and dislikes onto others while cohabiting spaces during the mandated COVID lock down.
It was previously highlighted on Hot Press's New Irish Songs. There, 'Angry Banger' has even been dissected as a freeing, playful song not only filled with psychedelic rock elements but layered with a "sci-fi ambience."
The new single follows previous releases such as 'I had no choice', 'Lost/Found' and 'Remember to get better'. Now, 'Angry Banger' makes an energetic addition to Underachiever's discography.
If you're jumping on the bandwagon or have been a fan since Underachiever's first break-out onto the music scene, get excited for July. On the 13th, he's set to take the Dublin venue Whelan's Upstairs stage by storm.
