Lead-single: EIGHT FIVERS

Kiely (vocalist) “‘Eight Fivers’ is about being out of touch with modern circumstances
while feeling socially limited. Never fitting in and kind of proud of it. Stuck with what I
have and happy for it. Being grateful and not fashionable, self-conscious and too aware
of what is lacking. Accepting that jealousy has played a big role in my life but trying not
to feed into it.”

I love these raw and rough post-punk mavericks. Their staccato sound,
the demonic voice of frontscreamer Dara Kiely, their chainsaw guitars and
electro crushes cause a casting out experience. Minacious and manic.
