BarryGruff Presents #4: Ghost Estates w/ Neon Wolf :: Flanagan’s :: Newbridge :: April 8th

So, it’s gig #4 for ‘BarryGruff’ Presents’ in Flanagan’s, Newbridge on Easter Sunday, April 8th. Entry is FREE as always and judging by the previous gigs, this is going to be one hell of a night!

Dublin 5 piece Ghost Estates made quite an impression in the past 12 months. A number stellar singles and storming live shows, including Electric Picnic and Hard Working Class Heroes, earned them a lot of praise from this blog and earmarked them as definite ‘one’s to watch’.

They are currently readying their debut album for release in June and the band brings their delectably tight indie sound to Newbridge for the first time. Accompanying them on the bill is Thomastown band Neon Wolf, whose own unbridled feel-good indie-pop has caused more than their fair share of a stir and they left quite an impression the last time they were in town.

So, forget about those Easter eggs, this is going to be a great night and one not to be missed! Entry is FREE as always and starts at 8.30pm, Easter Sunday, April 8thth. More info & Facebook event here.

(Video) Neon Wolf – ‘All of it’s Yours’

Neon Wolf popped up on the radar last year with a number of tasty slices of feel good indie.

The Thomastown lads have just released their debut video for single ‘All of its Yours’. The single was recorded with Leo Pearson (U2, David Holmes, RSAG) and the video is the handy work of MJ O’Carroll and Dylan Vaughan. If there was ever a song to sum up what a band is all about, it is this, wonderfully catchy indie-pop with unbridled feel-good energy, executed with perfection.

There’s an EP release on the horizon and tour to follow too. Happy days indeed.

Neon Wolf – The Good Life

Neon Wolf have release new single ‘The Good Life’, which follows up their wonderful debut single ‘All of its Yours’. 

‘The Good Life’ is another fine cut of infectious indie-pop goodness full of shimmering feel-good energy which the band have kindly made the single available for FREE on Soundcloud.

The Thomastown crew continue to impress and I’m looking forward to hearing more from them in the future.

Catch the band in Murphys, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny on October 29th and Flanagan’s Newbridge, Co. Kildare on October 30th.
