Of this feature length ‘Underline: The Practice Tapes’ session shot in the cavernous Guerrilla Studios, under a railway line in Dublin’s North Strand, Sean Treacy writes:
The Underline project seemed like a natural progression, to get three bands in with a small audience and capture them doing their thing. We’re hoping to produce engaging videos which will hopefully provide greater exposure to the variety of acts, both foreign and domestic, that are perhaps on the fringes of the more established music press and/or blog-o-sphere, and that we feel are deserving of a wider audience. The majority of these types of gigs etc. are circulated via word of mouth or by fairly insulated groups on the web so we’re really just trying to circumnavigate that and make it available to more people in the belief that there plenty of really interesting acts out there right now.
Bands featured: Ten Past Seven, Turning Down Sex and Crowhammer (track listings here)
