We Were Giants
Swords, County Dublin
We Were Giants are Colm (Vocals/Guitar), Ste (Guitar/Vocals), Danny (Bass) and Jay (Drums). The quartet formed in 2012 after the secession of Colm and Ste's band Blue Syndrome, who prior to splitting were signed to Blastbeat Records.
Their first EP, 'part one' was recorded and mixed in their kitchen. Stand out tracks, 'She Said' and 'Vampires' were well received by some of Ireland's top radio presenters including Dave Fanning, Rick O'Shea, John Barker and Cathal Funge.
Influences: Anything loud and probably hairy, Stevie Wonder too.
“WOW! What a tune!!!” - Rob O'Connor, Beat 102-103
“This is just a lovely, lovely track, big, big production, very, very lush…” – Rigsy, Across The Line, BBC
“I really like this. It’s kind of difficult to do something that melodic and heartfelt and lush...” – Chris Jones, Across The Line, BBC
We Were Giants completed a tour of Germany in summer 2013 which included a headline slot on the white stage at the Dithmarscher Rockfestival in Marne and were selected to play at the 2014 FOCUS Wales festival earlier this year.
The band have since been hard at work with Stuart Gray at Jealoustown Studios recording an album. 'All I Want' is the first single from the album, released on December 5th, with more releases lined up for 2015.
'All I Want' is available from most digital music services including iTunes, Spotify and GooglePlay worldwide and is accompanied by the release of a new music video directed by AJ Films.
