New Music – The Crayon Set – I Can’t Say No
Launch gig: Bello Bar – 21st Oct
In need of something a bit cheery? Well, here’s a new single from the good people with the crayons to help you in that general direction. You can see the video for ‘I can’t say no’ below.
It’s a taste of their new album Lost Languages which is out later this month!
The Dublin-based 6 piece, The Crayon Set, specialise in upbeat, alternative pop using a diverse range of instruments with an array of singers and vocal harmonies.
The band released their debut album in April 2013. It was co-produced by Nick Brine (Teenage Fanclub, Super Furry Animals) and was critically well received. Single ‘No.1 Fan’ received airplay on Today Fm and BBC Radio 6 amongst other stations.
The band have just finished recording their follow-up album, ‘Lost Languages’, with producer Gavin Glass. It is scheduled for release in October 2017. The album is a move away from the indie pop of their debut and is in part a homage to many of their favourite ‘Americana’ artists – “Tom Petty on LSD” is what they had in mind when entering the studio. The songs seem to deal with a number of interlocking themes: growing up in Ireland, trying to make sense of modern life and relationships, dealing with changes and failures, love and loss, identity, communication and expression.
