THE NORTH SEA
Dublin, County Dublin
The North Sea are a Dublin based alt/rock band influenced by Irish alternative acts such as Whipping Boy, A House and Into Paradise. Since the release of their debut EP in 2012, the quintet have been busy crafting their sound and steadily gathering a large following, especially since the release of their debut single ”In Love” last September, with a national tour of sold out shows across Ireland. The track itself was critically acclaimed upon its release, was named track of the fourth night by Hotpress magazine and was a regular on national radio.
The bands new single “Drinking Alone” will be released on iTunes on the 27th of February and has already received a wide national radio play, with Paul Mcloone calling it his favourite song of the year so far and again the blogosphere lauding their output as poignant, emotional and engrossing. They will shortly head out again on a national tour, hitting Cork, Limerick, Belfast, Dublin and Galway with details of a UK tour to be announced shortly.
The North Sea’s yet un-named debut album is due for release this spring. Recorded live to tape in order to capture their live sound, it was produced by Grammy Award winning Irish producer David Odlum at Black Box Studios in France.
Some kind words about The North Sea;
“Dublin’s The North Sea have had all the right tongues wagging of late and new single In Love should continue that trend. Lifted from their up-coming, as yet untitled debut record, the song is steeped in early Killers influences and is an impressive slab of icy alt rock”- Hotpress Magazine
“the single’s swaggering feel and underlined catchy indie-pop core showcases the North Sea’s ability to create mood as well as reliability through their song writing. A stand-out single, from a stand-out band on the Irish music scene“ –The Last Mixed Tape
“Think a more restrained Spies, one influenced by the subtler parts of Editors rather than the verbose tendencies of the National. “Moving slowly I don’t know what to say love, it only hurts when you’re young,” Eoin Kenny philosophises, speaking to a thousand tortured souls” – The Point Of Everything
"The band drape their hearts on their sleeves beautifully with songs like Drinking Alone and new single In Love. They have mastered and accepted their sound wonderfully." - Gigging Northern Ireland
"Front man Eoin Kenny's command of the stage was intoxicating, swaying with fervour as his Jeff Mangum inspired vocal further captured an audience already engrossed in the sound" - Across The Line
