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.
They recently released their debut single 'In Love' on ITunes and 7” vinyl , which was named track of the fortnight in Hotpress magazine, receive's regular radio play and garnished great review’s from blogs like The Thin Air, The Last Mixed Tape, The Point of everything and State.ie to name a few.
Their yet un-named debut album is due for release next 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
In Love’ is a brilliantly realised take on the alternative-rock genre. Pushed forward from dynamic and melodic lifts and drops the single captures the North Sea’s evocative sound perfectly. Imbued with a real sense of place the track is an exciting sign of things to come from the Dublin five-piece. –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
