Overhead the Albatross – release debut album Learning to Growl
What you may need to know…
1.The last time we met Dublin post-rockers Overhead, the Albatross they were gearing up for their debut album and making up for lost time with a hometown show.
2. Learning to Growl is finally here, and it’s received the reaction one might expect.
3. It’s streaming in its entirety above, with purchase links for double-vinyl, for them what wants it. If you’ve the time to check it out, or need study/working tunes, dig in.
4. Now begins the victory lap. Cyprus Avenue in Cork in June, and appearances at Castlepalooza and Knockanstockan fests.
Verdict: Dear readers, I know you don’t take kindly to hyperbole, so I’ll spare you. But you owe yourselves at least one listen to this record, front-to-back. You won’t regret it.
This is special.
these lads have some hype machine behind them…
I know it’s a Pink Floyd lyric, but it’s a bad name for a band
more instrumental post-rock… are there no singers/lyricists available in Ireland? or are they all more interested in being solo singer-songwriter Hozier types? I mean instrumental rock is OK. but there’s a serious glut of it in Ireland at the moment.
Bloody briilliant stuff.
