Irvine self-titled album out now

April 2, 2015

A South African born band now based in London, Irvine are an indie-rock treat who revel in the frenzied energy of their genre. Proudly independent, the trio take complete responsibility for work, with music is written, produced, mixed and engineered in house. Even the artwork is their own.

Fusing emotive big chorus rock anthems with experimental low-fi production, the target in recording the album was that every time you listen to it you would hear something new. This goal leads to a nuanced, layered approach to rock music which outstrips many other ‘plug in and play’ bands. Their carefully crafted recordings are also designed to capture the raw intensity of their live show – gigs which have consistently turned heads wherever they have travelled in South Africa and the UK.

The live show also saw the band headline Wild Kei Fest in South Africa, and they will soon be playing their first London show in 6 years this April. Keep an eye on their website for details, and for a taste of what you can expect, here’s a live video of album track ‘The Shallow End’.
