Hot Press are delighted to premiere the live video of the stunning new single from the Dublin-based band.
Ahead of the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, CCTV, next month, Columbia Mills are back with a brand new single, 'You're Not The Answer'.
"The song was written after a conversation I had with my mother late one night," Fiachra Treacy reveals. "She had just lost her 3 best friends that year, all to cancer. We talked about the hopelessness of watching it happen and about being left behind. As we grow up we go through a lot with our friends, birthdays, weddings, the births of our children, hard times, good times and then inevitably death. The cruel cyclical nature of life and the indiscriminate nature of cancer".
'You're Not The Answer' follows the release of three singles from CCTV – 'Strange Game', 'Who Am I Supposed To Talk To Now?' and 'Understand'. The singles have all garnered substantial radio support here and in the UK, from John Kennedy on Radio X, Dan Hegarty on RTÉ 2FM, RTÉ Radio 1 and both Ed Smith and Paul McLoone on Today FM.
Following a string of multiple sold out live shows to date, Columbia Mills are also set to headline Dublin’s Button Factory on Friday, April 24 – where they'll be joined by special guest Christian Cohle.
Take a look at the video for 'You're Not The Answer', filmed live in Yellowdoor Studios by Pete Kingston, below:
'You're Not The Answer' will be officially released tomorrow, March 13. Columbia Mills' new album, CCTV, is out on April 17.
