Only Rivals – Sing

Dublin four-piece – Stephen Arkins, Sean Reid, Jason McTernan and drummer Ally Doyle (top) – with a blisteringly crunchy alt rock anthem.

David Duffy writes:

On top of all of the achievements that this band has had which include touring with the likes of All Time Low, New Found Glory and Finch (all separately) I am sure that the only fact about this band that Broadsheet would like to know, is that they once played as the backing band to Johnny Logan on [RTÉ telly show] The Hit (see below)…

I’ve been requested to play some Star Wars themes at an upcoming funeral and thought it would be fun to hastily throw together a rough medley. Although it’ll be more subdued on the day, the Glasthule organ IS the father.
