The Kells-based band released their second album “White Fox”, the follow-up to their 2008 award winning debut long-player “Carry the Meek”, in October 2010. A glimpse of what was to come appeared on the nation’s airwaves back in May which raised the bar of expectations for the much anticipated new album; the “The Naturist” announced to the fanbase that the band were pushing the boat out and not resting on their laurels!
“We’ve definitely grown up since ‘Carry The Meek’,” maintains Niamh. “In terms of all of us getting involved in the song writing process and, I suppose, just maturing as people. Making the song structures more interesting is crucial for both the listener and the band, because it holds the attention for longer.” Podge recounts, “The first album was practically all electric guitar; the new album is more musically varied – and not for the sake of it, either. It’s just that we’re getting our heads around different instruments. It’s a natural evolvement, and more texture is no harm.”
Produced and mixed by Karl Odlum and recorded at Sun Studios, Temple Bar (Dublin) & May Lodge (Co. Meath). Mastered by the legendary Abbey Road Studio (London) engineer Peter Mew ( David Bowie, The Beatles, ELO, Bob Marley, etc)
The band will be playing a special night in Whelan’s dedicated to their late manager Derek Nally on the July 16th. Derek meant a great deal to the band and was a major part in helping them bring their music to the foreground in Ireland. The band will be joined on the night by some very special guests. All proceeds will go to The Nally family.
All proceeds will be donated to the Nally family.
