The Red Box was shaken to its foundations last week when Bass Odyssey supported the Jungle Brothers in a gig of epic proportions. Now the Cork outfit are in the process of consolidation with a short Irish tour in August and a follow-up single to their debut ‘Twilight’ – which is also the theme music to a new film by Paul Mercier titled Lip Service which premieres in October at the Cork Film Festival.
Skindive are creating a big buzz at the moment, planning a follow-up promotional EP to their highly successful Swallow five-tracker. The band have gigged Germany, The Netherlands and UK extensively and are now turning their attention to the US of A. They plan a preliminary two-week tour of New York, Boston, Phoenix, Arizona and LA in September. Vocalist Danielle Harrison will no doubt be looking forward to re-visiting her home town, the City of Angels. An extensive US tour is planned for later on in the year at unusual venues and experimental radio stations.
The band have simplified their set up on the new four-track EP and are at the receiving end of very positive media exposure in the States and getting airplay on many college radio stations. Moreover, they have been invited to feature on a movie soundtrack. They have also been approached by several record companies in the last 10 months but have not committed themselves to anything as of yet.
