Anything Good In ‘Billboard’?

Offaly-based hip hop trio Chasing Abbey, top from left: Ro, Bee and TeddyC

Rising out of Tullamore, a rural community of roughly 14,000 in Ireland, the juggernaut trio Chasing Abbey are the consummate underdogs.

They started from the bottom, three childhood friends playing traditional Irish folk music, and now, they’re here taking over the Irish airwaves — and eyeing a total Stateside takeover.

In fairness.

    I usually have no really strong feelings about the music BS puts up, some I think is OK, some I would not be interested in.

    I think this have given me an aural bleed – not the good sort you get from AC/DC or Queen, the bad sort you get from lobal herpes.

      Not at all.

      Due to their inherent ephemeral nature, clouds are short lived things.

      I’d say you are at best, 24 hours old.

      That’s his hoodie, half pulled up. The hood of his coat is behind it.

    They look like the kind of guys who are all moody in photos but if their mothers shouted at them to get moving, they’d be outta there like hot snot.

    Are they really taking over the Irish airwaves? I gave up on new music after the pistols split up.

      Not for much longer,they should release their own hoodies or do a colab with some upcoming Irish street wear designer.
      It’s all about being vertically integrated these days,think Pharell-Billionaires Boys Club ,Tyler The Creator-Golf,Kanye-Jezzy.
      SeanJohn/rocawear blazed the way.

    What can you rap about coming out of Tullamore? Selling dank weed in the Lidl car park? Car seized by the po po for no valid NCT? Sharons preggers? The new drink driving laws?

      Their hardships like not being able to afford a proper length sock in the Tullamore weather.

      I’m sure they were, all us fuddy duddys will have to make do with our decades worth of interesting and well written and produced popular music while you’re off being down wiff da yoof innit?

    Are they the lads in the Eir advert?
    Does that not automatically make them uncool with “the kids”?

    the down jackets and no socks combo has to stop, more or less adorning a contradiction, are you too cold or too hot? make your mind up :)
