CRY MONSTER CRY
+ MOSSY NOLAN
“THE FALLEN EP RELEASE”
There is no harmony like brotherly harmony, something completely unforgettable in the weave of voices and play of emotions, stamped into the fraternal DNA that stems from a lifetime of shared experiences. You can clearly hear that fraternal magic at work in the songs of brothers Richie and Jamie Martin, better known as Cry Monster Cry, whose lives have revolved around music for as long as they can remember. The last two years have seen them writing their own songs, based on stories they have made up or heard on their travels. Warm folk melodies meet rich, descriptive lyrics, bringing the listener to a far away place. The band has been honing its live shows over the past few months, playing shows like Dublin’s Communion club night, Vantastival Festival and the Guth Gafa film festival. This year has already seen them shortlisted by Hotpress for their “Lift Off” Competition, taking to the stage at The Music Show in Dublin’s RDS and opening for hotly tipped Belfast singer songwriter Gareth Dunlop.
They release their debut EP “The Fallen” on May 25th after two months of writing and recording in a studio in the seaside town of Malahide. Working with producer and musician Keith Lawless (Fiach, Juliet Turner) to achieve the right sound, the two brothers tried to keep the songs as organic as possible, playing the majority of the instruments on the EP themselves.
