Some thoughts on “Drinking Alone”
“My favourite track this year”
Paul McLoone Today FM
“Soaked in the same atmospheric forward motion that made ‘In Love’ so attention grabbing, ‘Drinking Alone’ is propelled by a pounding rhythm off-set by glistening textural post-punk influenced guitars and a powerful vocal performance. ‘Drinking Alone’ is an affirmation of the band’s boundless promise”
The Last Mixed Tape
“Dublin’s The North Sea have had all the right tongues wagging of late”
“Dublin five-piece The Norh Sea have released arguably their strongest single effort to day, ‘Drinking Alone”
The Thin Air
Drinking Alone – Tune of The Week
“Festival And Gig Guide”
“A pounding rhythm and post-punk inspired guitars deliver a rich and rounded indie-meets-post-punk sound as Kenny delivers a standout vocal performance”
“A truly wonderfully stirring song, and a timely reminder of The North Sea’s prowess”
"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"
