THE NORTH SEA
Dublin, County Dublin
The North Sea are currently working on their debut album, which they are recording in Black Box Studios, France.
A little background;
The North Sea were formed through a shared love of 80s and 90s indie, such as Whipping Boy, The Wedding Present and The Smiths. Since then they've being busy playing numerous gigs, such as shows in Dublin, Galway, Dingle, London and Brighton in the UK.
Last year The North Sea were part of The Whelan’s One To Watch Tour 2012 and had the honour of touring with a major influence on the band, Whipping Boy. Last summer they released their debut self titled EP, which is currently available in Tower Records, followed by gigs in Cork, Waterford and headline shows in The Workman’s Club and Whelan’s. Their music has being described as a gentle blend of atmospheric music with dreamy lyrics, guitar driven, vocal heavy narratives and have being likened to a young Smiths and The Cure with a grungier edge. They have received airplay on Phantom FM (ICON), 98 FM(Totally Irish) and 2FM (Dave Fanning Show) and Today FM (Paul Mcloone). They are currently working on their debut album in Blackbox Studios France, which will be released in the Autumn.
