Video: Pranks - New Friend - Live From Tigh na Rí Rua

Pranks - 'New Friend' - Live from Tigh na Rí Rua

Info: Dublin two-piece Pranks have released a new video today for their latest single 'New Friend' recorded live at Tigh na Rí Rua in Co.Wicklow which the post rock grunge duo put together during a recent writing retreat. In 2015 the band released their debut single 'Ghost', were named as Nialler9's New Band of the Week and also played Hard Working Class Heroes and Whelan's Ones To Watch festivals. The pair plan to build on this momentum in 2016 and are forging ahead with the release of three new singles over the coming months.

From a heavy rock intro and incessant guitar loop, long-term friends Micheál Sheil (guitar / vox) and Gearóid Connaughton (drums), meld melodic choruses with a mechanical rhythm, musically and lyrically reminiscent of something you might have found on Weezer's classic 1996 album Pinkerton. Thumbs up from me and definitely a band I would be eager to catch performing live in 2016.
