The North Sea were formed in 2010 through a collective love of ’80s and ’90s indie and it certainly shows, with echoes of The Wedding Present, The Smiths and The Stone Roses flickering through.
The Dublin five piece have been busy on the live front playing shows across Ireland and the UK including Indiependence, Knockanstockan and Whelans One To Watch over the weekend. The band have served us a sumptuous sneak peek of their forthcoming EP with ‘Decay’. It is as close to a perfect indie song as it gets with guitars, drums and Eoin Kenny’s stunning vocals all woven together into a lush and rousing number.
‘Decay’ may be one solitary track but it is certainly good enough to get us excited about their forthcoming EP, out later in 2012, which give a clearer idea of what these guys have in the locker.
