The Dublin garage pop band talked about their long hiatus, getting back into music, and what fans can expect from them in the future.
You have a bit of a garage rock pop sound, which over the years has become a bit heavier and punkier. How would you see the evolution of your sound over the last couple of years?
You’d be right in saying it’s a garage punk poppy kinda sound. When we started out it was me just doing acoustic shows and then I started playing with Ian who I’ve known since I was 15. We were in heavier punk bands when we were younger so I think just playing with him, and a couple of different drummers, that we got in at the start, we started playing the songs that I had been playing acoustic in a heavier way, and then when Ruan joined it just naturally took on a heavier tone than just being the pop songs that I’d been writing by myself.
You’ve been together for over 7 years now. In the earlier years you were going really heavily with 2 albums as well touring - not just here in Ireland, but also in the US and Europe. The last couple of years have been a bit quieter, was that something you had planned?
