Hot Press Review of Daft Quotes:
It’s worth giving Constant Supply’s ‘Daft Quotes’ a spin, if only to hear James Gillen dip his voice down to a basement-skimming Eb2, or as I like to call it, very, very, very, very low. Luckily, a muffled hook quickly takes this tune from plodding and miserable to properly catchy.
Constant Supply – “Crystal” (The Dadada Music blog, North Carolina)
The Irish duo offer this menacing single about love lost. It’s deliciously dark and sometimes droning, and the best of what we are featuring today. We’re keeping an eye out for what’s next from Constant Supply.
"Two men, one drum machine & no end of darkly compelling alt-rock"
Darryl Sterdan, Winnipeg Sun, Canada
"Letterkenny-based duo armed with strong songs, sparkling arrangements and a drum machine"

Constant supply are a two-piece alternative rock band from Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.
Hailing from the northwest of Ireland has its advantages and disadvantages when you are in a band. On one hand, you are far from the vibrant music scenes of the larger cities and their many venues. On the other, you have freedom to develop your own unique sound free from the distractions of what everyone else is doing.
Consisting of James Gillen on guitar and vocals, and Conal Sweeney on bass, the band create melodic, atmospheric compositions, driven along through light and dark alleyways by a pulsing drum machine. Their first collection, the Alleviate EP, was released in 2011 through UK Label Takeaimfire Records, leading to gigs around the country and more radio coverage. Preceding this they recorded a dedicated session in 2FM’s renowned Studio 8.
With sounds evoking Radiohead, Elliott Smith, Pavement, Slint, and Nirvana, Constant Supply have built upon and propelled from these foundations with their new album The Coast Ain’t Clear. Recorded with Villagers man Tommy McLaughlin in his Attica Studio (as was their EP), the album is awash with texture – layer upon layer of guitar and vocal, anchored by a solid organic bass and metronomic drum machine.
