We Are Aerials Single Out Now

WE ARE AERIALS is the new project by Derry songwriter, Conor McAteer.

Mainly known as a solo artist, having released two acoustic albums (Pirates in 2007 and 2011’s The Devil in the Ether) and played support to the likes of Billy Bragg, Declan O’Rourke and Bell X1, McAteer decided he needed to explore different genres and bigger productions on Voeckler, the first WE ARE AERIALS album.

The result is as diverse an album as you are likely to hear, ranging from hook-heavy Garage Rock songs like Pile ‘em Up and Chewing on my Sleeve to more introspective moments like We Are Chemicals and There is a Darkness.

“The album felt very different to what I had done before and while I play very stripped back versions of a couple of the songs at acoustic gigs, the way they’re written seemed like a separate project to the stuff I’d put out under my own name which is kind of rooted in classic late 60s singer-songwriter folk. Voeckler is a bit more adventurous from a sonic point of view.”

Eclectic but accessible, WE ARE AERIALS should appeal to fans of Elbow, REM, The National, Radiohead and Kenna.

The single, We Are Chemicals, is out today and is available from all good digital stores.

Voeckler is out on 21st February.

AVAILABLE FROM iTUNES HERE

Boy Lights Fire single available now

Boy Lights Fire were formed in 2009 by George Mercer (guitar/vocals), Mike Daly (bass guitar) and Kevin McDonnell (drums/percussion) and have since went on to establish themselves as one of the country’s hardest working and most promising acts.

Live favourite and debut single ‘Weatherman’ is a hook laden, stomping opener with a mass appeal that is destined to fill the dance floors of Indie discos and venues alike.

Last year the band were invited on the FMC tour to support Irish artists Jape, And So I Watch You From Afar and Fionn Regan. The band also made appearances at Electric Picnic, Hard Working Class Hereos Festival and Temple House Festival. Anyone who has caught the trio live will be aware of their exciting and dynamic sound.

“Weatherman” received the award for “Best Song” at the Highway 67 music awards and has already gained airplay from highly-respected  radio DJ’s such as Dave Fanning (2FM), Tony Fenton (Today FM) and Cathal Funge (Phantom FM).
