Dublin indie-rock trio FRUITZ is composed of James Keegan (vocals, guitar), Adam Whelehan (bass, backing vocals) and Jacqueline Campion on drums.
Irish alternative outfit FRUITZ have returned with their brand new single 'Be Like This' - taken from their debut EP 'The Pits and The Glamour'.
Following on from their popular release 'Daydream' in 2020, a sold out headline show at Whelan's, and support for Louis Berry; FRUITZ also are set to back up The K's on their tour in September.
The band quickly established a great reputation for themselves as an exciting live act after their sudden success on the live music scene in Ireland, and haven't stopped releasing indie gems since.
‘Be Like This’ is a modern indie classic described by the band as "the finest example of our sound".
Having been in the band's live set for their last couple of gigs before the coronavirus pandemic, FRUITZ deduced that the fan favourite gem deserved to be released as a single.
“There's something about this song that just hits a nerve and gives you goosebumps as soon as you hear it," says Jacqueline. “It’s my favourite song we’ve done, I feel like it has all the ingredients to be an indie anthem," adds James.
Recorded in Dublin's famous Windmill Lane Recording Studios, FRUITZ teamed up with producer Cian Synott and mastering engineer Fergal Davis on this song, as well as Gareth Halliday (Noel Gallagher) for the artwork.
FRUITZ launched into the music scene in late 2017, quickly making a name for themselves as an exciting live band. The Dublin band's first release was hard hitting single ‘KNOTZ’, which was followed up by ‘U & I’ and ‘Girl Around The Corner’. The up-and-comers made their UK debut to a sold out headline show at Liverpool’s Zanzibar Club and playing Gullivers’ in Manchester for renowned indie label Scruff Of The Neck.
