Saramai - Heavenly
Info: Meath trio Saramai have released a video to accompany their track, 'Heavenly', composed of footage from their October tour last year. The track is taken from their wonderful Magnetic North EP which was released in the same month, with I myself observing; 'Third track 'Heavenly' starts with a superb echoed guitar riff with shades of Mark Knopfler, and Saramai's vocals have possibly never sounded so crystal clear and captivating, it's a stunning vocal performance which grabs you and then gently lets go half-way through before soaring away.'
2016 was a busy yet successful year for the band; 'They were chosen as one of the bands to showcase at Hard Working Class Heroes and at Arrivals Sligo Live this year. Their Other Voices performance was also aired during the summer on RTE 2. Having recorded two EPs with Tommy McLaughlin in Attica Studios (Villagers, Cathy Davey, Bell X1, SOAK), they have recently released their second EP ‘Magnetic North’ after a 12 date UK and Ireland Tour with a headline show in Whelans.
They have enjoyed radio play on RTE 1, 2FM, Lyric FM, Today FM, 8radio, BBC Ulster, Radio France, Newstalk, 98 FM, Highland Radio, Radio na Life, Near FM and LMFM among others.
'Magnetic North' and 'Red Moon' are out on Greenbay records and are available on iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify.
