A music blog from Ireland.
Love this song and play it a bit too much! I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to post it, as I actually had dibs on it just when the blog seemed set to fold and in the time between getting back up’n'running, a few other places picked it up instead. Rather than add to that noise and then have to let it go, I figured I’d get a better chance to post it soon, and I was right!
Last Days of 1984 are Darren Moloney and Brian Rice and River’s Edge is the duo’s first single. They call their music ‘Beach House’ as a play on words for the current trend of quirky labels for sub-genres and incorporate nice things like afro, surf, tropical waves and beats into their sound. The plan to bring River’s Edge out as a 7″ single on white vinyl in July with a new song called Safari.
Next Saturday 9 July @LastDaysOf1984 will play their first gig upstairs in Whelan’s for the midnight show. If you drop a line to lastdaysof1984 @ gmail . com they’ll put your name down on the guestlist and save you the late-night admission fee into the venue.
