Four-man-Wicklow-ensemble Raglans were the first band to be featured on the blog in 2012 and rightfully so. Their lavish toe-tappingly infectious blend of indie, folk and punk is one of the catchiest sounds doing the rounds at the moment.
We drop in on them again as they’ve generously made their self-titled debut EP available for free from bandcamp. The EP is lively, plucky and endearingly likeable indie, heavily indebted to the likes of The Rifles, The Coral and The La’s, it is brimming with a whirlwind of punchy vocals, guitar swaying twangynes and sing-a-long choruses.
Don’t just take my word for it, grab yourself a copy of the EP and watch out for Raglans throughout 2012 and beyond.
