Following on from 2011’s hit album Rocket Science, Storyfold are back, having spent the last year in the realms of studio-ville perfecting a new sound. The Dublin based band kick off what promises to be a massive 2014 with the release of their brand new EP ‘The Underpass’, with its plethora of pop sensibilities helped no doubt by a pristine production by Ger McDonnell (U2, The Cure, Kasabian). It is engineered by Phil Magee (Kodaline) and marks a progressive mature sound that’s guaranteed to get crowds dancing.
Storyfold formed in late ’09 and released their debut album ‘Rocket Science’ in 2011 – garnering a National radio hit with ‘Delphine Wakes’. After just 8 months of existence the album cracked the Top 10 in the Irish charts! It was described as ‘impressively timeless and effervescent’ (Hotpress) whilst BBC Radio1 said:
“Do you know how I would describe that? I would say that’s Ben Folds Five meets Manic Street Preachers. They’ve definitely got that crossover sound that’s edgy enough to be cool but commercial enough to be radio-friendly. I could see them go the Joy Formidable route…”
Supporting their new release, the band will play a multitude of live dates that will see them play the length and breadth of the country. Storyfold are no newbies when it comes to the live circuit having already played to over 40,000 people in Croke Park and having supported Feeder on tour. On April 11th their first release of the year will be EP ‘The Underpass’.
