It’s been a while since hearing a band like this, too long in fact. The Statics are a Dublin quartet who it is fair to say, sound much more likely to have emerged from the banks of the River Mersey than that of The Liffey.
The Statics specialty is jangley infectious indie-pop songs with twangy rhythmic acoustic guitars, rich and distinctive vocals and sing-a-long choruses, echoing the sounds of the likes of The La’s, John Power & The Coral. There’s is heart warming indie-goodness played with energy and a refreshing honesty and conviction, not to mention an overwhelming ability to get you moving.
The Statics will release their debut single ‘Holiday’ in the Autumn but they’ve plenty of live dates coming up including Retro Revival at Sweeneys on Dame Street this Saturday (July 7th) and this year’s Castlepalooza.
