The Dublin electronic disco outfit's 'Desire' EP drops on July 27th along with second single 'Starting Now'.
Dublin six-member groove band Loraine Club have shared the title track from their forthcoming Desire EP.
The emerging artists have spent the past years carving a name for themselves with a string of releases garnering support from artists and media outlets throughout Ireland and UK.
Loraine Club originally started informally, when brothers Jordan and Zac Curtis began writing together after a collaboration between their two previous bands in 2015, sparking inspiration for a new project.
The next years saw the pair join forces with friends Jonny Halpin, Brian Smith, James Connolly and Mick Keeley - all whom they had played with in previous indie outfits over the years. The goal this time was to bring something a bit different to a very guitar driven music scene at the time in Dublin.
Two years (and a pandemic) later, Loraine Club are set to release their first EP. Desire fuses elements of popular soul, hip hop, electronic disco and 90's RnB they create a sound that is very much their own. The EP was produced by the bands own Zac Curtis - also known as UKG Producer Prozak - who himself has released a successful EP Make Me Feel on Shall Not Fade label. The young producer has been busy this time turning his hand at songwriting and even lends himself on vocals and keys on the EP.
The band's 2020 track 'Disco Biscuits' was championed by Phil Taggart of BBC Radio 1, who described it as "disinfectant disco". Other Loraine Club releases include 2019's 'Bleu' and 'Bills'.
Sold out live performances in famous Dublin venues such as Whelan's and The Workman's Club saw Loraine Club being invited to join internationally acclaimed act Friendly Fires at their headline show in The Academy, Dublin. The band have also performed at mini-festivals and pop-up venues around the country with a live-show that is rehearsed to fine detail while also bursting with energy and atmosphere.
For fans of Tame Impala, Jungle and Parcels and influenced by the likes of New Order, Prince and George Michael; Loraine Club are a breath of fresh air in the Irish music scene.
