Ropemakerplaying Galway with Hope is Noise and The Magnapinna

What you may need to know…

01. Math-rock three-piece Ropemaker hail from the alternative-music capital of Ireland, Portarlington, Co. Laois.

02. Having gigged sporadically the last few years, they’ve already shared stages with Steve Strong, the dearly-departed Terriers (the real ones, not the Dublin-based pretenders), ZINC and others.

03. Streaming above is the band’s 2015 extended-player, Abyssiniaavailable for download via the band’s Bandcamp.

04. Catch them live next at the Roisín Dubh on the 19th, in support of FEAST’s Cork takeover of the Roisín Dubh, featuring Hope is Noise and The Magnapinna.

Verdict: Swaggering, striding math-rock in a Battles or Alpha Male Tea Party vein. Grand.
