But conversely, this is a band that isn’t prepared to be static artistically. The 2013 Hidden Pigeon EP encapsulated the band’s progress up to that point. The four tracks Hidden Pigeon, As I See It, Alone and Hit&Miss have also worked well as a calling card for the band. Consequently, promoters of the Electric Picnic, Castlepalooza and Canalaphonic have wisely sought them out to perform at their festivals in recent years. If it was their calling card, they have also used it to draw a line that separates the earlier part of their career and the latest phase. The Statics have unveiled an array of new songs at their most recent gigs and these reveal a willingness to explore a more robust but textured musical direction. Songs such as Goodbye, I Know That You Know and Fake Sorrow are darker and may remind some of a latter-day Arctic Monkeys or Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. What is more obvious is that this is a band that has rapidly become one where comparisons are harder to make and an individualistic artistic through-line is much more discernible. The Statics charge is on. The Statics are: Liam Gardner (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Daragh O’Connell (Backing Vocals/ Bass), Jacqueline Campion (Drums/Percussion)
