Video: BODIES - Numb



Info: BODIES began as the solo project of singer/guitarist David Anthony McGeown, who spent the last year recording with contributions from members of acclaimed Irish bands such as Squarehead, Blooms, Roisin O and Overhead The Albatross. 

Starting out when he ͞had the idea of writing something that documents that mid-twenties period in a persons life where you go through things that teach you how to interact with the world. Not the coming of age high school/college period but the moments in your life where you – truly fall in love, understand friendship & deal with death/mental health for the first time as an adult."

It's difficult to describe 'Numb' as anything but a glorious piece of music which has fallen on our laps just as 2017 draws to an end. The combination of the almost apologetic guitar strum, McGeown's beyond the stratosphere vocals which impart a powerful amount of feeling, and the ghostly percussion are a piece of majesty unbound. Everything is executed with the aim of bringing the listener beyond the realm of the present, delivering them through the music to a point of self-acknowledgement. Pinch yourself.

'Numb' is taken from BODIES' debut EP 'SOAK' which will be launched in Whelan's on Saturday, 25th of November, event info is here.
