Sunday 30th April - The Swedish Railway Orchestra

The Swedish Railway Orchestra
https://www.facebook.com/events/311165039299047/

Rob Smith is not afraid to dip his toes in unknown waters. After two albums and years of touring as an acoustic-driven indie singer-songwriter, the Dubliner unexpectedly found enormous success in South America with two punk rock singles. Now his latest project is certainly something quite different. The Swedish Railway Orchestra is an a project which indulges in alternative dance and chillwave.

  • Starting out a duo, TSRO made their debut in DJing in New York’s Webster Hall in 2013 before closing the main stage at Vantastival for two years back to back. As the project was fading, Smith decided to take it to the next level and make original music under that name.

    “I was really blown away by the sounds bands like Jape or LCD Soundsystem make when you go see them live,” the 33-year old explains. “Even for example when you watch Stop Making Sense today, some of the effects are simple yet timeless in electronic music. I try incorporate bits of that, and bits of what I know having played indie rock for years, into this”

    The first result was Northern Lights, a five minute strolling electronic number, accompanied with a slightly psychedelic video which gives an interesting look at Dublin life. The floodgates were open and Smith engaged in producing enough material to make an entire album.

    “I’ve probably have enough songs to make two albums,” he says. “But I wanted to test the waters with this first one. At least I know there will be no difficult second album for me.”

    The album Northern Lights is out September 1st on CD and vinyl nationwide and digitally worldwide.

Saturday 6th May - The Urges “Time Will Pass” Single Launch

RRIC present: The Urges “Time Will Pass” Single Launch w/ support
…Five men from Dublin; their names are not important now, but what is, is the sound that those five men create.

  • The Urges Biog:
  • …Five men from Dublin; their names are not important now, but what is, is the sound that those five men create.

    After some to-ing and fro-ing and ebbing and flowing, May 2015 saw The Urges release “Passing Us By” to considerable acclaim. As the first single from their forthcoming long player, “Passing Us By” renders a vivid impression of The Urges’ present sound. From the 60s sounds of the Doors, Scott Walker and Love, to the baroque neo-psychedelia of The Coral……and any and all of the good gear in-between and onwards…….The Urges have absorbed and incorporated their influences and arrived at a sound that is distinctly their own – all swirly, psychedelic rock n’ roll with soaring harmonies, strings, brass and half-heard echoes.

    The Urges’ new recordings mark a stellar leap forward in content and execution from their debut album ‘Psych Ward’—though that record is not without its advocates. Released internationally on Steve Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records, ‘Psych Ward’ was (and will continue to be) heralded as a raw and impassioned bolt of garage rock and psych. The Urges’ reward was ceaseless touring of every underground club and festival that Europe and the U.S. (and beyond) had to offer. The over-ground also took notice…supports with the Soundtrack Of Our Lives, The Sonics and The Bees, among others…SXSW and CMJ showcases… and appearances at Ireland’s premier music festival, the Electric Picnic, were to follow…

    But that was then and this is now.

    Let their sound fill your head……………………..………………………………………….for it is the music they create that counts.
