Sparks Fly

Belfast, County Antrim

"Really simple, great pop tunes that open up into epics towards the end. They are brilliant"- Rory McConnell BBC Radio 1

"A joyous, uplifting, harmony driven breath of fresh air" - Daily Mirror

“A pathos-addled indie-rocker the like of which Elbow or Doves would be proud of” - AU Magazine

"This band has raw talent in excess" - Larry Little

Sparks Fly's debut EP, released in the autumn was a statement of intent and encompassed both widescreen driving rock and sun kissed harmony-laden confessionals. It was described by AU magazine as "...pathos addled indie the likes of which Elbow or Doves would be proud" and lead track 'Save Some for Me' gained radio support from BBC Radio 1's Rory McConnell and Huw Stevens, 6Music's Tom Robinson, BBC Across The Line and Phantom FM in Dublin amongst many others both in the UK and Ireland.

2009 sees the band build on their success by releasing their first national single 'Creatures' on March 30th. A visceral rock stomper, the song rails against weekend binge drinking culture and sees the band working with industry professionals who have experience with artists such as the Ting Tings, Gym Class Heroes and Gnarls Barkley. The single will be followed by a UK tour and the release of their first album.
