Whelanslive.com is proud to bring you The Midnight Hour. Showcasing the best new talent in Ireland.
This could be our last Midnight Hour as we know it! but fear not, oh no this is not bad news
For our 8th visit upstairs in Whelans we’ve decided to bring you just two bands for a change, but its two of the best bands we’ve ever had:
With influences ranging from Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley to Explosions In The Sky and Radiohead, this band draws inspiration from all genres and combines them to create their own explosive sound. After a year of extensive gigging alongside the countries cream of the crop, including Cathy Davey, Villagers, Little Matador, The Divine Comedy & Turn, Color//Sound’s debut single ‘To The Countryside’ landed in June.
Formed in late 2010, The Statics are a four-piece Dublin outfit consisting of Liam Gardner (Lead Vocal/Guitar), Daragh O’Connell (Guitar/Vocals), Jacqueline Campion (Drums) and Thomas Nugent (Bass). Mixing the pop sensibilities of The Beatles, the snarling vocals of Arctic Monkeys and the rhythmic acoustic guitars of the Everlys, The Statics are a truly powerful force live and on record
