Scattered Ashes are an abrasive Dublin four-piece. Ranging in influence from Brutalism to Punk, the band match aggressive sonic textures with a strict sense of space. You can their influences, but the product is entirely their own. Taking cues from the likes of Bauhaus, Gang of Four, & Interpol the band sits in a darker lane than most of their contemporaries, taking post-punk back to its murkier roots. Their debut single ‘Love Is Not An Option’ released in November 2020 picked up immediate radio support from Steve Lamacq and across the BBC introducing network as-well as being playlisted by Seattle's legendary KEXP, with the band making numerous appearances in publications such as District, Hotpress and The Thin Air.
“Parallel Lines” is their latest single, a sombre meditation on the finite; a brooding paen to faith, doubt
and reason. Released May 21st as a 3 track EP on blood-red 12" vinyl, the Parallel Lines EP includes first single ‘Love Is Not An Option’ and an angular remix by Soft Boy's Wastefellow. All tracks were recorded at Darklands Audio Dublin with Dan Doherty (Fontaines D.C.), Mastered by Pete Maher (U2, Echo and The Bunnymen).
"Angular, intense and addictive." (John Barker, 98fm)
“Utterly brilliant and totally unique.” (Phil Taggart, BBC Radio1)
"A mustily almost latter-day gothic piece of weary and agitated pop music."
(Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6)
