When considering the recent success of the Irish music scene, be it on a domestic or international level, it’s easy to overlook the People’s Republic (of Cork). But that’s not to say that things are quite down in the Rebel County. Recent years had seen a steady host of interesting bands emerge from Cork, Neon Atlas being one.
Neon Atlas – Velocity
Drawing inspiration from the likes of early days Feeder, Tim Wheeler’s Ash or even Therapy? Velocity explores the edgier side of guitar laden indie-pop. The new single is set for release on May 15th and will coincide with a gig in Cork’s Cyprus Avenue. As a taster for Neon Atlas’s forth-coming album, Graffiti Reality, it’s fair to say that there is a lot of anticipation surrounding the bands July release.
