COME ON LIVE LONG
Having spent the past two years recording and rehearsing, Come On Live Long will launch there eagerly anticipated second album ‘In The Still’ in the main room of Whelans on the 17th of June. Tickets are 12 euro.
“In The Still’ is the second album by Dublin based band Come On Live Long. Following on from their critically acclaimed debut Everything Fall, In The Still signifies a rebirth for the band, while also representing an evolution of their distinctive blend of exquisite melodies, driving rhythms and ethereal soundscapes. Recorded over the last two years, during which the band were apart geographically for long periods of time, the album deals with the theme of intense isolation juxtaposed with an overwhelming sense of togetherness. At times intimate and deeply personal, there is a sense of quiescent melancholia in its breathy vocals and soft handed melodies that lead into unexpected explosions of less controlled, violent dynamic shifts – a sonic representation of the band’s collective experience. Through a longing for experimentation and a refusal to compromise, COLL took their time, allowing each song to evolve through multiple iterations.
“For us this album represents a lot more than just four years of hard graft. It is intensely significant because it documents a time where we collectively learned how to accept life in all of its highs and lows, that when things become dormant there is always an imminent stir in the still, in whatever form that may be. We feel we have pressed a lot of ourselves into this one. Some of these songs coming straight from our most personal spaces, late at night, in our respective bedrooms, and some coming from energetic bursts of all day and late night writing sessions together. We know this one has taken its time but we have pored over every tiny facet of its sound to make sure it is exactly as we want you to hear it”.
