THE ALTERED HOURS
Upstairs@Whelan’s from Midnight.
Whelanslive.com is proud to bring you The Midnight Hour. Showcasing the best new talent in Ireland.
The Altered Hours exist in a swirl of the psychedelic and hypnotic, crafting slow burning epics of blistering intensity. Masters of dynamics, a song can begin with a whisper before exploding into something all the more fiery and intriguing. Acutely aware of pop history, they take the steady rhythms of Velvet Underground-esque decadence and add their own inimitable style, lending the outfit a retro-influenced yet wholly original sound.
When Altered Hours take to the stage they cut an endearingly loose and improvisational vibe – the interplay natural and ever-changing – but they never neglect the innate melody of their craft.
‘They are a fantastic new band from the south, and play wonderful psychedelic rock. Their track ‘daydream parade’ is already one of my favourite new tunes of 2011′ – Swear I’m not Paul
