Ah lads, a fantastic video for Windings‘ new single The Hassle which will be released as a double A-side single with another song, The Space I Occupy, in January on Out On A Limb Records. It’s loud – almost as loud as GiveAManAKick – like the finest noisy rock of the 90s and in complete contrast to the wist-folk heard in Old Like J and the pop of Embury Greenway. Dexterous lads all-round then.
The video for The Hassle was made by drummer Aaron Mulhall, put together from footage shot by Matthew Organ when the band were recording the songs in the studio. The video comes with some unexpected news however; after three years on sticks’n'stool duties, Aaron has decided to leave the band. From Facebook ::
Today we’re genuinely sad to have to announce the departure of our drummer, Aaron Mulhall, from windings. Aaron’s has been windings drummer for about 3 or so years now, and has invested an awful lot of his time and energy into this band. We’ve had a mad laugh in that time, and played many, many, gigs, all over the world. Each one has been a pleasure to play, and we at windings will always remain firm friends with Aaron.
We wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavours, and we’re gonna miss him loads (even if he does pronounce Google, “Guggle”)
But as one door closes…another drummer walks in, taking the form of Limerick musician Brian Meaney who, YouTube informs me, is part of the Limerick Jazz Workshop and according to TPOE, has played in many different bands. Windings’ thankfully have a glowing endorsement for their new band-member: “Brian is a daycent oul’ head, known to anyone with even a basic knowledge of Limrock History. He’s been around as long as ourselves, he’s deadly, and we look forward to having him in our band.”
Best of luck and a fabulous new year to all. I look forward to hearing The Space I Occupy on its release in January!
