Belfast, County Down
Belfast(ish) based Alt Rock trio, equal parts post-hardcore, noise-rock and power-pop, pretty much.
"Power trio Abandcalledboy release their self-titled EP, a seven track offering showcasing a band ready to take their place among some of NI's heavy hitters. Packed with melody, meaty riffs and a metric tonne of hooks, highlights included the anthemic 'Serotonin' and the razor-sharp, neck-bothering 'Cliff Richard'. To be honest there isn't a weak song on the opus. File under "G" for game-changer. " - Edwin McFee, Hot Press Magazine (April 2014)
"This is the real deal." - Andy Cairns, Therapy? (BBC ATL, 31.03.14)
"The songs will fit comfortably into their live sets – in fact, they will probably become new favourites immediately. Abandcalledboy definitely put the ‘hardcore fun’ into rock n roll. This EP will without a doubt win them new fans and thrill old fans alike." - Melanie Brehaut, Chordblossom
"Including the release’s lead single ‘Cliff Richard‘, the EP features the brims with the Ryan Burrowes-fronted trio’s now fully-formed grasp of fusing earworming melodies with pummeling weight. Over the course of seven tracks, and most impressively on ‘Serotonin’ and ‘Mirrorlover’, drop-tuned riffs meld with deceptively contagious vocal hooks and an unrelentingly impassioned delivery that confirms the arrival of one of the country’s most promising alt-rock bands of a generation." - Brian Coney, The Thin Air
"...a collection of caustic hook-filled stompers that cements the band’s position as one of the most promising talents in Ireland at the minute." - Cian Walsh, Goldenplec
